British Foursome NIGHT FLIGHT Release Touching Ballad From Upcoming EP – Here’s ‘DAVID’…

New sonic impulses

5 December 2019


Who: A London quartet whose immediate melodies, earnest lyrics and huge hooks
that echo icons of yesterday, have earned them comparisons to the likes of Fleet Foxes, Radiohead and The War On Drugs.
They released their self-titled debut last year. You
can stream it here.

Track: DAVID – first cut from their upcoming EP ‘White Noise‘, out 28 February 2020.
Singer-songwriter Sam Holmes says it’s about “A mourning of love through second-hand
news. The conversations shared with a forgotten friend in the strange aftermath of a relationship wherein perpetuity ends.”

Score: ‘David’ is a reflective meditation about a broken relationship. A heart-rending ballad about hurt feelings so many of us will recognize as these painful breakup emotions are universal, are part of life, are part of human interaction. The song’s melancholic and wistful tone strengthen the sense of loss. Music for lonely hearts and wounded souls.

25 Years Ago THE STONE ROSES Released Their Second And Final Album ‘SECOND COMING’…

5 December 2019

Today 25 years ago, on 5 December 1994, Manchester’s legends THE STONE ROSES released their second and final album titled biblically’ SECOND COMING‘. It came more than 5 years after their sensational self-titled debut LP, their magnum opus, all killers no fillers. The delay was due to a lengthy legal dispute with their first record label Silverstone Records, the fact that they were too busy spending the big advance money they got from their new, major label Geffen Records, but most of all there was the immense pressure
on the band to make another masterpiece.

Despite top tracks such as ‘Driving South’, ‘Ten Storey Love Song’, ‘Love Spreads’, ‘Your Star
Will Shine’
and ‘Begging You’ the longplayer failed to meet the high musical expectations and the critics weren’t impressed. Yet the record peaked at #4 on the UK Chart and sold over 1 million copies worldwide.

Here are the three singles
