FROM THE SHADOWS
From The Shadows will be released digitally on 22nd August.
We have kept our baroque hearts on our sleeves for this release. Big string motifs and a strident back beat to drive it home.
When writing for an album I do get a sense of how it will flow song wise. You start with THAT first song and you work around it, using it as a rough template for the other unwritten tracks to exist with. We started with The Only One for this venture and I wanted a sort of counterpart to that songs feel. So here it is!
We are currently working on the last few tracks for SILVERDALE and its coming together slowly but surely.
August and September we see us acoustically out and about for the first time in a while.
Sunday 14th August we will be playing on the edge of the earth at our annual pilgrimage to The Groudle Glen Clifftops Concert.
This is always a wonderful day out for us. We like to think that our songs work as a backdrop for the Groudles stunning vistas.
Then September 10th and 11th will see us opening up acoustically (as a two piece) for the The Magic Numbers very own Romeo Stoddard. The Colby Glen is the venue which again is a great place to exercise our muse.
This will be a little bit special for us I think.
Details of these excursions can be found on our Facebook page.
I'm seeing the word Glen being used alot here. Maybe it's a sign.
SIMON PURE & THE SIREN
Simon Pure & The Siren will be released on 22nd April. From the outset we wanted to evoke summer on this track.
Joe Harvey White is again centre stage with his Pedal Steel backed with a string arrangement from Dave and myself. I love the sound of the harmonica so it was a no brainer to have its sweet tones included on this. I wanted it to be the siren call in the song.
Ironic that it sounds so fluid now its finished considering the whole processes of getting the right instrument in the right place at the right time was a storm of sorts in composition
I wouldn't have it any other way.
THE RAREST ROSE
Our brand new single The Rarest Rose will be released on March 25th.
We have been spending the last few months recording here on the Isle Of Man in preparation of our album and its all coming together slowly but surely.
This track was a wonder to record with its beautiful pedal steel vibes ringing out true from new found musician and friend Joe Harvey White. Joe isnt a stranger to session work and has recorded some stunning stuff in his own right. We couldn't be happier to have him aboard and we are looking forward to having his wide-screened tones on future recordings....
