Cardiff Psych Pop band KEYS unveil brand new single recorded entirely at home using cassette four track recorders, re-connecting with bedroom recording, and the magic it can produce.
The hiss of the cassette turning is the sound of the endless possibilities and magic of the pop song spilling out in vivid colours at the exact moment inspiration took hold. No second guessing or over thinking, only the joy of creating.
A perfect example of this is the first single ‘This Side of Luv’. “This was our attempt at joyous early 70’s Midlands pop. 3-day weeks, winters of discontent, a Tory government… yet out of that bleakness came some heroic, ecstatic British pop music.
Music has the power to lift the spirit, if we can do that for 3 and a half minutes then we’ll feel our efforts were not in vain.” Matthew summarizes this collection of songs, also written in trying times, as: “something to help us get through this lockdown. Hopefully you can use it too.”
