CAIN RISING News
Monday October 10th: Our new release arrives. Check the Rear View Mirror! It's a five track EP - Extended Play - how 60's is that!!
The title track of the EP, Rear View Mirror, is a real “hit the road” song that drives along from the opening chords to mariachi outro with a real summer feel. This is the first time the band have experimented with a brass section courtesy of Rebecca Gibson Swift and Pablo Mendelssohn. We released this track as a single earlier this year and it became a major hit at resorts across Europe.
Glasgow City Spires has the band rocking out behind lyrics reflecting the alienation that can hit you when returning to your home city. Listen out for an awesome solo from Ian.
Soldier takes the tempo back a touch with a real retro feel. A touch of Andy Fairweather-Low, a touch of The Hollies. Ian dusted off his Gretsch for the evocative solo.
Walk My Way - Rock meets Swing - again with horns from Rebecca Gibson Swift and Pablo Mendelssohn.
Finally, Social Man. A tense, raw, stripped back Country song - once more showing the band’s versatility and confidence.
The drawing behind the cover art for the Rear View Mirror EP and for the singles is by Julian O’Dell. Julian’s artwork has long been a favourite of the band’s. His work can be found on his website artattackoncancer.org . All proceeds from his sales go to the Action Against Cancer charity.
Available on all good on-line digital outlets.
