RISING BRIGHTON DUO SOFT SPORTS SHARE NEW SINGLE ‘GRADUATION DAY’ AHEAD OF SHOW AT LONDON’S NOTTING HILL ARTS CLUB.
Juxtaposing lyrical introversion and sonic extroversion, ‘Graduation Day’ is an infectious combination of inventive musicality and compelling vocals, playing on the idea of mental state being its own disembodied terrain that must be nurtured and maintained separate to physical experience, an idea that is explored visually in Jamie Johnson’s beautifully chaotic artwork.

Commenting on the track , the band have said:
We spent four days on the Isle of Wight back in July, locked away in a water tower with Boe Weaver; one of the songs that came out of those sessions was “Graduation Day”, a song that we had been piecing together for a number of months. As this was the first time we’d spent an extended period of time in a studio together, we wanted to take the time to push the elements of the tracks into a bunch of weird places and see where they went. The result is something that we think is fresh and are really proud of. Lyrically, the song dwells a bit on solipsism and the relationship you need to maintain with the often foreign terrain inside your brain
The duo have just completed a UK tour with critically acclaimed singer-songwriter George Ogilvie, where they supported and performed as George’s backing band over seven dates around the country, and will appear at Communion Music’s monthly showcase at London’s Notting Hill Arts Club on November 3rd.
