Turin Brakes don’t hang about. The estimable London 4-piece release their eighth studio album through Cooking Vinyl on January 26th 2018, followed by a UK & European tour.
After seven studio albums and a million records sold worldwide, Turin Brakes might’ve been excused a bit of downtime, however… 2016 saw them return to national radio playlists with all 3 singles from the critically acclaimed album ‘Lost Property,’ coupled with 18 months touring across the UK, Europe and Australia, with a plethora of festival appearances in between. But along the way new songs just kept on bubbling through. The band (Olly Knights, Gale Paridjanian, Rob Allum and Eddie Myer) along with co/producer Ali Staton made a hasty return to the legendary Rockfield Studios in Wales (where Queen recorded Bohemian Rhapsody) to strike while the inspiration was buzzing… no downtime!
Olly Knights: “The idea of an invisible storm came to me as a theme during the end of writing the album, I’ve always loved the quote “everyone you meet is fighting their own war, so be kind.” Invisible Storm (the album) is very much coming from that sentiment, that we are all at the mercy of our own internal weather systems despite outward appearances that may paint different pictures.
This album tries to trace a line between these tense internal struggles and what’s happening outside of ourselves. Perhaps even suggesting a link between the invisible storms of our inner worlds and the outer tensions and social and political storms that seem to be sweeping the world these days.”
Essex singer/songwriter Kevin Pearce has received plaudits for his work from The Independent, The Guardian and Mojo magazine as well as receiving BBC Radio 2 and BBC 6 Music support. Pearce’s sonic approach, where different textures and techniques are combined to give his sound its uniqueness and power are topped off with a keening, really quite incredible and timeless voice. When he grows up he would like to be an Astronaut.
