Take Care Of Love2015
Artist: Wide Skies Title: Take Care Of Love Label: Before The Dawn Impact Date: 4th May 2014 With conversational lyrics that tug at the heartstrings and an ocean of haunting melodies shrouded in delicately woven sonics, WIDE SKIES are a quiet storm, a whispered maelstrom. Vocalist Hannah Caughlin has the endearing softness of Natasha Khan but together with her bandmate Jamie McDonald they achieve a merge not unlike Nico and Lou Reed. Inspired by luminaries such as Feist, Kate Bush, Portishead, Elbow, Fleetwood Mac and Burt Bacharach, WIDE SKIES' magic is evolving at a rate of knots. The sound of Folk, Soul and 60ʼs pop woven and enmeshed with Hannah and Jamieʼs British Indie roots. Hannah previously brought her vocal and writing talents to The Accidental, The Memory Band, The Bicycle Thieves and notable pop producers Xenomania. Jamie's previous incarnation was in the band South who released four albums on Moʼwax and Sanctuary as well as touring with The Strokes and Ian Brown. He has recently spent time as a tour guitarist with Finley Quaye and Nicolai Fraiture of The Strokes. Supported by the brilliant musicianship of Ascher Nathan on keyboards (touring member of the band 'South'), Alister Wedderburn on bass (previous member of 'Look, Stranger!') and Dav Shiel on drums (previous member of 'Beth Jeans Houghton & The Hooves of Destiny'), WIDE SKIES are set to ignite their beautiful shimmering airy textures around the globe in 2015.
