We are so pleased to announce that our brand new single will be released on 10th July and it will be called “I Want You”.

As usual being independent artists we urgently need every pre-save we can get. So we beg you to please save our new single. Are are running a competition for pre-saves. All you have to do is take a screen shot of your pre-save and you will be entered into a prize draw to win a limited edition signed physical CD of the single and our current album on Vinyl.  

However, if streaming isn’t your thing and you prefer a physical CD. Well, do not fear we have a limited number available for pre-order below.

For the artwork for this release we wanted to channel some serious nostalgia vibes. So we took inspiration from classic 80’s movies like The Goonies and ET where everyone was riding their bikes everywhere and we tied a love story element around that.

After last month’s dark and heavy subject matter the duo lighten things up with the breezy and summery “I Want You”. The song itself is about the feeling of falling in love. Those early stages when you are lusting after someone. But, you are not sure if the other person feels the same way. So, the song recounts those first moments of wanting to be with someone. Through to being their everything and those moments when you turn the lights down low and imagine all the bad things you can do. 

Throughout the monthly release strategy, the duo have enjoyed exploring new sonic palettes, song types and generally having fun with music. Letting the songs guide their own sound without letting marketing get in the way of the creative process. They duo have also discovered the joy of writing a song and instantly recording it. Not stewing over ideas. If a song comes quickly then great. If not, then it’s onto the next idea. A real moment of creative freedom. 

 
This time, the duo have incorporated a horn section and solo trumpet into the song. As well as using the recording studio as an instrument, leading to lots of sonic exploration. Such as playing a banjo with a slide, using distortion on it and reversing it. The song itself actually comes from an idea that was sung into a phone voice recording mimicing a trumpet. After coming off tour we showed the idea to Nathan Simpson. Nathan then transposed this idea to the trumpet and the song was written around that sequence of notes.   

Proud to be DIY artists Chantelle and Chris recorded, produced and mixed the song themselves. With Chantelle and Chris playing all the instruments on the track. Apart from the Trumpet and Drums. The Drums were tracked by Chris Brush in Nashville, TN. The track was Mastered by Pete Maher (U2, Rolling Stones, The Killers, Snow Patrol and many more).  “I Want You” will be released across all digital and streaming platforms on 10th July 2020. 

Shadows On The Wall

We are pleased to announce that our brand new single “Shadows On The Wall” will be released on 8th May and it is available to pre-save now by clicking HERE:

However, we put together this trailer/short film to promote the single and help show you what the song is about. This is probably the darkest subject we have covered and as a result we have went with a darker and edgier sound to fit the subject matter. We really hope you enjoy this short film as we had lots of fun putting it together and it added another outlet for us being creative.

The song recounts the tale of a family secret, one that has been known about but been denied for years. The story recounts a tale of child abuse and how it is hidden within the family. The victim just remembers seeing the “Shadows On The Wall” that came to visit every night, haunting the victim like a demonic ghost. As the story moves on the character decides to go back and face the fear of going home and facing the demons of the past. But they find the courage to go back and they set about laying the past to rest with explosive measures. 

Probably, the darkest lyrics and subject the duo have tackled. But we felt it was important to let listeners see the deeper and darker side to us and our writing. To fit in with the theme of the song we explored a harder musical feel. With heavier guitars and a beefier production. One of the joys of this monthly single campaign is we are free to explore different sounds and musical ideas. Something that has been very liberating for us as a duo. As we can let the song itself take the lead, taking us wherever it wants to go.   

Proud to be DIY artists Chantelle and Chris recorded, produced and mixed the song themselves at their studio Renegade Studios. With Chantelle and Chris playing all the instruments on the track. Apart from the Drums, which were tracked by Session Drummer Chris Brush in Nashville, TN. The track was Mastered by Pete Maher (U2, Rolling Stones, The Killers, Snow Patrol and many more). 

The artwork for the single is a specially commissioned illustration (by artist Becvardoodles). The illustration is a hard hitting image capturing the literal meaning of the lyrics and how the abuser torments its victim.
