New Publishing signings

Music Publishing, News Comments Off

It gives us great pleasure to introduce our newest publishing signings – the critically acclaimed The British Expeditionary Force & The Seal Cub Clubbing Club.
After their debut album ‘Chapter One: The Long Way Home’ which garnered critical acclaim from the NME, Rock Sound & Drowned In Sound, Aid Burrows, Justin Lockey and James Lockey return with an album that evokes the same throbbing musical urgency of the first album but the sound has grown in intensity.
Lockey is emerging as THE pre-eminent young British producer with a host of other production duties ranging from Get Cape. Wear Cape Fly to Enter Shikari, with many of the recordings featuring a seven piece live band (rather than the stripped back electronic approach of the debut) inspired by their jaw dropping live shows.
Their sound combines ethereal soundscapes, sonorous guitars, beautifully fragile vocal and vocoder work, to form something akin to My Bloody Valentine filtered through the best of Brian Eno with a smattering of the Iceland inspired sonic vistas of Sigur Rós.

The Seals debut album, ‘Super Science Fiction’ came out in 2009, to great critical acclaim, as well as being nominated for XFM newcomer of the year and receiving plaudits from Mike Walsh (Head of Playlist). TSCCC also performed at T-In The Park and recorded sessions for Marc Riley’s BBC 6 show as well as touring with the likes of Juliette Lewis, The Fall & British Sea Power.
Compared with The Super Furry Animals, they have picked up plays from Huw Stephens (In New Music We Trust), Gideon Coe, Steve Lamacq, Don Letts and John Kennedy’s Xposure show along the way.

“There’s essentially little separating these guys from currently lauded bands like The XX and Wild Beasts” Noel Gardner – BBC Music.
