Digital Sunsets

Under The Cover Of Darkness

Saturday, 17 September 2016

We are delighted to announce details of our forthcoming double A-side single 'Under The Cover Of Darkness/Digital Sunsets' available for download from 21 October directly from our website, iTunes and Amazon. The single will also stream on Soundcloud and Spotify. 'Under The Cover of Darkness' is a brooding bass driven cut that unfolds as a love letter to music and bands as a constant for us in times good, bad or indifferent and is best distilled in the line "I still believe in a band". It draws inspiration from the David Bowie quote as read by actor Gary Oldman at 2016's Brit Awards shortly after the musician's death: "Music has given me over forty years of extraordinary experiences. I can't say that life's pains or more tragic episodes have been diminished because of it, but it has allowed me so many moments of companionship when I have been lonely and a sublime means of communication when I have wanted to touch people. It has been both my doorway of perception and house that I live in". 'Digital Sunsets' is a cautionary tale about communication and the preservation of this as a physical act. The track has already received support from North Manchester FM and BBC Radio Lancashire and is accompanied by an animated video from the super talented Mark Smee. We will be supporting the single's release with some live dates: Friday 21 October: Single launch, The Artisan, Rawtenstall with DJ Lowrider. Wednesday 26 October: Featured artist at The Wonder Inn, Manchester. Wednesday 2 November: The Whitaker Museum and Event Space, Rossendale. ......with more dates to follow Please spread the word far and wide, thank you for your support. Signals x
