Featuring members of Boy Azooga and Squid...

Katy J Pearson has shared indie jewel 'Take Back The Radio'.

It's a bold return from the songwriter, who teams up with members of two of our favourite groups in the process.

The release features Davey Newington of Boy Azooga on backing vocals and drums, while Squid's very own Laurie Nankivell also appears.

Out now on Heavenly, 'Take Back The Radio' is a buoyant indie pop burner, with that crisp guitar set against her lilting vocal.

"I enjoyed writing and recording this track so much, it really was a wonderful process," says Katy. "When we were in the studio, Davey Newington (Boy Azooga) came in to lay down drums and add other textural elements, followed by my flatmate Laurie Nankivell (Squid) who added some cornet."

"Writing this paragraph from isolation also makes me reflect upon how some of the lyrics feel quite poignant to our universal situation - 'and the land giving hope'. So many people are getting out into their gardens, or are walking to keep them sane during this strange time..."

"I also hear that radio stations have had a surge in listeners which tickles me into thinking this song is certainly appropriate!"

The hand drawn video for 'Take Back The Radio' is well worth a watch - tune in now.
