Hope and Social - FEEL - Album Launch
20 Oct 2016
Hope and Social are bringing their brand spanking new album “Feel” to their spiritual home, The Brudenell Social Club.
Always a highlight of their tours, "The Brude" has seen some of the finest performances of the Blue Blazered Boys career to date, and this one is set to be something special - just a few short weeks after the release of H&S's fifth studio album.
Simon Wainwright: "'FEEL' was always going to be something of a departure for us. More abstract approach; layering, adding, taking away." But along with their trademark melodious wizardry, guitars, pianos, organs, brass, bass, drums and Those Voices, we hear analogue synths, 90’s handclaps. Brass, and backing vocals. And coffee mugs. And ukuleles. Numerous home keyboards. A concert xylophone (rescued from a garden). A sampled elephant. A helicopter.
From the plastic Spector wall of sound of “Tommy Gun”, to “South Facing” - a Yorkshire Casio/Portasound Ensemble, via schizoid chamber pop of “London”', through the carnival that is “Come What May”, to the sugary sunshine pop of lead-single, “Sunrise Laughing”, “Feel” takes Hope & Social's trademark, all-embracing songwriting finery, wraps it in an 80's sensibility, makes it bigger, smaller, wilder, fresher, dusts it with Talking Heads urgency and doffs it’s flat cap in a salute to David Bowie.
Not to be missed.
Please check times with event organiser for any last minute changes.
