Studio Time

So - our new EP is recorded and to be delivered to the media world next week - we are all real excited by this..The tracks were recorded with Luke Smith - who has just come back from a cave in Santa Barbara recording for Depeche Modes Number 1 album…he was there for 6months, he was very pale..but a number 1 album was recorded, maybe it means something, shame we didnt record an album….

An EP was all we could muster…ahemmm afford this time round! We’ve been working on about another 8 new tracks that we’re equally excited and proud of.

The tracks we decided to cram into this Ep are - 1. I DONT NOT LOVE YOU 2. BELLS AT MIDNIGHT 3. St GEORGE 4. RACING RACE - so, yeh we went and recorded Bells at midnight and st george again! i hear a general sigh…do not worry we learnt a valuable lesson from re-recording Locarno, not that we’re not happy with it, but it was a learning curve…so, fear not because these new recordings are great and have really added to the rawness of our sound and we hope captured us more as a band..Also, this EP will now draw a line under all the ‘older’ tracks - so we can get on with releasing brand new ones from now on…

How exciting…The EP is called - ‘MATCHING HEARTS, SIMILAR PARTS’ out end of June….let us know your thoughts - we’ll have it up on the myspace pretty soon…come see us live..so all of it…all at once…

Shooting the VIDEO for I DON’T NOT LOVE YOU

So, the video for our next single ‘I DONT NOT LOVE YOU’ - has been shot, recorded and edited..how exciting. It was filmed in just one day in Walthamstow…Alot of love and respect to Marcus Sharp and Sam Crack - they directed the whole thing and came up with the concept, ideas and artistic love. We also used a very beautiful Spanish girl, Penelope Cruz watch ya back…

The concept of the track is well…love…being completely infatuated with someone and not having the courage to admit your love for them, finding it hard to get the words and the tense feelings surrounding that..its kind of a story in that by the end the character (me..you..whoever) gains the strength to admit their love…simple tale of love..there we go.
Below are a few stills from the vid to wet your appetites..it should be up on myspace and a TV channel near you in the next couple of weeks..I (sam - lead singer) get slapped in it…whoever can see any blemishes or cuts, gets a free t-shirt..

see that anger…slap hurt…
