1 Gold Dusta/p
Artist: Wide Skies Title: Gold Dust Impact Date: 2nd October 2015 After the success of their 2014 debut single Take Care Of Love, London-based band WIDE SKIES release their second single Gold Dust. Gold Dust, a song of love and courage, has already been praised in live sessions. With its soaring melody and penetrating lyrics, it’s one you won’t easily forget. For a preview of this gorgeous new tune, catch WIDE SKIES at their Green Man festival debut on Sunday 23 August 2015. http:// greenman.net/artists/wide-skies/ With their impeccable recordings and spellbinding live perfor- mances, WIDE SKIES have sealed their reputation with a loyal fan base, and are now rapidly establishing themselves in the hearts and minds of broader audiences. A third single, Waiting For The Answers is planned for later in the autumn, and currently the band are busy recording with renowned mixer and engineer Ian Dowling (Bombay Bicycle Club, Adele, Madison Ward and the Mama Bear). With him, they will soon have completed their debut album, due for release early in 2016. Since its launch last year, Take Care Of Love has received great support from radio, not least by Lauren Laverne. She played the single numerous times on her BBC 6 Music show, made it her ‘headphones moment’ and featured it on her BBC 6 Music Rec- ommends show. WIDE SKIES performed a stunning live session for Robert Elms on his BBC London show and were introduced to XFM listeners by John Kennedy. ￼￼￼￼ About WIDE SKIES 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. Inspired by luminaries such as Feist, Kate Bush, Portishead, El- bow, Fleetwood Mac and Burt Bacharach, the band create a rare and arresting atmosphere in which they paint scenes of love, loss and courage. They weave the sound of Folk, Soul and 60ʼs pop perfectly with their British Indie roots. Hannah previously brought her vocal and writing talents to The Ac- cidental, The Memory Band, The Bicycle Thieves and notable pop producers Xenomania. Jamie's earlier incarnation was in the band South who released four albums on labels including 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. WIDE SKIES’ core duo of Hannah and Jamie is supported by the brilliant musicianship of three other band members: Ascher Nathan on keyboards (touring member of the band South), Alister Wed- derburn on bass (formerly of Look, Stranger!) and Dav Shiel on drums (previous member of Beth Jeans Houghton & The Hooves of Destiny).
