Back in February we featured ‘New Morning‘ as our Song of the Day from Newcastle based Suntrapp. Today we have the pleasure of premièring the new single ‘Silhouettes‘; the second song to surface from the forthcoming debut EP Yannina.
Suntrapp began as vocalist Jake Houlsby’s response against the greyness and melancholy of his previous musical output; a positive and hopeful change of outlook from him, lyrically and melodically. Jake soon began firming up his invigorating ideas with the help of producer and former Detroit Social Club frontman, David Burn; early demo ‘Fuel For The Fire’ secured him a spot at Generator’s Evolution Emerging showcase in Maybefore debut release ‘All The Seas’ helped land him the North-East’s prestigious Alan Hull Award for songwriting.
The forthcoming debut EP, Yannina, is the finished product of those sessions; a peacefully blooming record imbued with love and vitality, inspired by Neil Young’s emotive narratives and The Beach Boys’ carefree pop but most importantly, the overlooked simplicities of day-to-day life.
The release will be celebrated with a very special gig on Saturday 31st May at a secret location in Newcastle, tickets for which will go on sale mid-April, with the venue being unveiled in the week leading up to the release.
Upcoming live dates:
Stockton Calling Festival on 19th April 2014
