“Rattling Bones” the new single by The Eastern Swell – out now!

We’re thrilled to announce the release today of “Rattling Bones”, the outstanding new single by The Eastern Swell.
The lead single from their forthcoming “One Day, A Flood” debut album, “Rattling Bones” is written by guitarist and vocalist Chris Reeve and with string arrangements and production by Pete Harvey (of King Creosote, Modern Studies & Meursault repute). It’s available to download from all major sites and serves as an excellent primer for the album.

A multi sectioned track, after a brief calm before the storm, we’re suddenly catapulted into a dark hypnotic guitar riff with echoes of Link Wray, Duane Eddy, The Cramps and Led Zeppelin abounding, before we emerge into the light and the song proper commences.

Against a gorgeous, almost countryesque backdrop, lead vocalist Lainie Urqhuart sings about the fears of getting older and the vulnerability of love: “I’m troubled by thoughts, but I’m prepared to walk this rough shod path to its end”.
After a couple of minutes, an unexpected key change and guitar solo ushers us into the third section of the song before we return to the opening guitar riff as the song reaches it’s thundering climax.

The album “One Day, A Flood” is released on CD and download on Stereogram Recordings on September 16th 2016. The band play The Voodoo Rooms in Edinburgh on Sunday 18th September with support from candythief.

Press quotes:
“The songs were like stories, not just lyrically but musically, taking you to wonderful places and then moving you along to another wonderful place.” 7aheadmusic.
“Off to an auspicious start, and with such a broad musical range to draw from, a debut album is an enticing prospect indeed.”
“laced with country-tinged harmonies, rockabilly twangs, sweet Appalachian blues and the occasional laid-back heartbreaker”
The Skinny
“touches of Americana, a tinge of country-rock and a soupcon of psychedelic folk blending organ-wash with vibrant guitar overlaid by longing female vocals, there’s something good going on here but I guess we wait for the album to really get inside their music.”
“from the opening chords, listeners are engulfed and captured by their imagination. It’s master storytelling at its best.” Is This Music?
