James Day Confronts The Brexit Blunder With Single ‘Keep The Euro, Keep The Pound’

We’ve all had enough of the Brexit blunder and like most of us, Londoner James Day has got behind the nation’s exasperated cry for everyone to ‘just get on with it’! Teaming up with legendary music producer Stuart Epps (Elton John, Led Zeppelin, Oasis), Day has released his single ‘Keep The Euro, Keep The Pound’.

Gritty vocals, grinding rock rhythms and an extremely catchy chorus, Day has gained attention following his live performances on Westminster Bridge and outside Parliament and has acquired the following of both leave and remain activists alike.

Recorded at Scream Studios in South London, Day’s prog-rock sound resonates the likes of The Clash and Paul Weller and this raw energy screams the exacerbation in Day’s message  “see the gathering crowd, why don’t we give ’em some sound? They all got choices, they all got voices, and they can make their country’s proud.” 

Rather like the situation the UK has found itself in, the track has found that by looking to successes in times-past, the route to the future becomes much clearer. What unites us is stronger than anything which divides us.

Strange Fiction – Tease Her (new album debut)

A Barcelona based band who all grew up in households surrounded by music, it’s little wonder that the four members of Strange Fiction ended up writing and recording their own music. With varied musical backgrounds, their new album ‘Orange’ is a heady blend of genres, particularly rock, indie and pop, with influences as diverse as Led Zeppelin, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Incubus, Michael Jackson and Tracy Chapman.
It’s an unusual mix, but one that shines through in the neat pop groove and vocal of lead single ‘Tease Her’ which gives way to a huge rocking chorus. The track – written about a misunderstanding over a girl at a party which may or may not have resulted in a band member being soaked by beer – is a stellar introduction to the raw sound of the band.

Engineered and recorded in Spain by Tomàs Robisco and mastered in London by Andy “Hippy” Baldwin from Metropolis Studios respectively, the album is a triumph, capturing perfectly the edge that the band works to bring to their live sound.
The songs are specially designed to play well live as well as in the recordings, and if you like what you’re hearing above then keep an eye on the band’s social media – they’ll soon be releasing live, acoustic videos of their songs so music fans all around the world will be able to see the quality of this young band for themselves.

 

‘Tease Her’ is due for release May 18th with the album to follow on June 1st.
