Black Submarine have announced a new single ‘Heart First’, which will be released on 8th June via Kobalt Music and is taken from their debut album ‘New Shores’ released in March.
The band have also announced an 11-date headline tour in October which commences in Brighton on 2nd October and sees the band headine London Islington Assembly Hall for a final night on 16th October. Black Submarine will also be heading out on tour as support to Echo & The Bunnymen next month.
Mixed by Jim Spencer (Robert Wyatt, Echo & The Bunnymen, Factory Floor, Oasis), Black Submarine’s debut ‘New Shores’ is a 10-track record of spaced-out vocals, deep beats, rolling bass-lines, molten soundscapes, meditative chord sequences and explosive string-arrangements. Sounding like the nether-space between early morning and daybreak, these songs are a transformation of the music that surrounded each member in their early careers, made relevant again by the hybrid of today’s contemporary sound
New single ‘Heart First’ is an emotive and powerful string-laden track with intense vocals that from a hushed start launch into an explosive chorus backed by all-encompassing guitars and drums. It follows the darkly brooding track ‘Here So Rain’ which received support from 6Music, XFM and Radio 2.
