Today MISS VINCENT reveal brand new track COLD HANDS via a new music video.
This is the second track taken from their forthcoming second EP SOMEWHERE ELSE, which is released 19th May on Uncle M.
The band have also announced two shows to mark the release of ‘SOMEWHERE ELSE’
26th May – Joiners, Southampton
5th June – The Garage (Upstairs), London
The EP showcases a sonic progression towards a fuller-throttled, punk influenced and more raw soundscape, which can be seen in COLD HANDS and previous single THE LOVERS.
The evident change in musical direction on SOMEWHERE ELSE was not a conscious one; after heading to a friend’s warehouse to organically craft and track the initial demos, vocalist Alex recalls on the first listen how he struggled to recognise the band on the recordings as his own – this was a more brash and fiery sound. After discussing this with the rest of MISS VINCENT, the band collectively agreed that this record represented the sonic path they wanted to follow, showcasing a natural evolution from 2015s EP Reasons Not To Sleep.
“We’ve always had a dark tinge to our music, and that’s definitely present in both the feel and the lyrical content of the new EP. But there’s also a little Against Me influence, a little Gaslight Anthem, and a sound that really lets the themes and the songs take a more pragmatic direction. We want to create stirring, honest punk rock music that feels real. We wanted to keep all of the grit and crackle we could, but still make it sound huge. SO much modern recorded music is produced to within an inch of its life, with loads of guitar parts that will never get played live, layers upon layers upon layers of vocals, and even programmed drums. For me, that takes so much of the raw emotion away”
– Alex Marshall, Vocals & Guitars
Since their inception in 2013, MISS VINCENT have grown to become an unrelenting live force – highlights to date include support to the likes of As It Is, Dead!, Bayside and Calabrese. 2017 will see the band push their live shows to the limit, with their EP release shows and a fuller live tour to be announced soon.
Armed with a game-changing EP, MISS VINCENT are a more self-assured and determined band than ever before.
