Scottish group Neon Waltz have shared new song 'All In Good Time'.
The band are based in Caithness, the most Northerly county on the British mainland, suitably wind-swept spot for their evocative psych-pop.
Reminiscent of Michael Head, elements of The Coral, or even The Walkmen's later material, their debut album was a real joy.
The creativity continues, with Neon Waltz using an actual castle as their ad hoc base for rehearsals and writing sessions.
New song 'All In Good Time' was recorded and filmed live at Freswick Castle, and it patiently unfolds, with a fulsome vocal shackled to a keys-laden framework.
It's a mature performance, restrained in its impact while also cutting loose at times.
Neon Waltz comment...
“It's a very personal song and a track that we had planned to record in a more stripped back fashion. We were in the middle of two weeks writing in Freswick Castle and decided to try it with the full band when we had a break from other tunes. We had a bit of fun and after 3/4 takes a pretty heartbreaking song turned into something more uplifting, and as we were set up to record demos anyway, we decided to video the session as well.”
“The label loved it and we liked that they were keen to release the track quickly so we're excited to see what people think of the track. I think we'll still record the song as was originally intended, hopefully it'll give people an idea of how songs can take on a totally different life once it’s gone through the band process.”
Tune in now.
