THE HEAD AND THE HEART+ CATTLE & CANE

The Head And The Heart‘s new release Signs Of Light, recorded in Nashville with producer Jay Joyce (Eric Church, Cage The Elephant), crackles with the upbeat, sing-a-long energy of the the band’s finest work. Lead single ‘All We Ever Knew’, which was written during the ‘Let’s Be Still’ era but never captured to the band’s satisfaction until now, is sure to be a crowd-pleaser, while ‘Turn It Around’ seems primed to be a future concert staple, matching its inspirational message with a lush and multi-layered soundscape.

Throughout, the colors are brighter, the electric guitars are louder and the musical touchstones more universal. The propulsive, smile-inducing ode to Los Angeles ‘City Of Angels’ and the head-nodding ‘Rhythm & Blues’ nod to classic Fleetwood Mac, while the organ-flecked ‘Dreamer’ is a timeless-sounding ballad that could have been beamed straight out of an old jukebox.

On Signs Of Light, the gamut of emotions is felt most deeply on the Josiah Johnson-penned title track, which none of the other members had ever heard until they happened to walk in on him playing it over and over at the piano during pre-production in El Paso, Texas. “It was one of those moments where no one talks,” Russell remembers. ”No one needs the chords; no one is looking up. You simply pick up your instrument and play. The next thing you know, nearly 10 minutes have gone by and you have no idea how or why or what just happened.”

Plus support from CATTLE & CANE

Led by siblings Joe and Helen Hammill, Cattle & Cane have the ability to shift even the hardest of hearts with their perfect, soaring harmonies. Joined by their brothers Fran (guitar & backing vocals) and Vin Hammill (bass), along with close friend Tom Chapman on drums, Helen and Joe’s finely crafted indie-pop showcases kind of mesmerising harmonies which are truly synonymous with family.

Summer 2016 saw Cattle & Cane working on their brand new album with producer Luuk Cox at the helm. Their debut album Home, released in September 2015, signalled a clear statement of intent and saw them gatecrash the Official Independent Album Chart; finishing the week sandwiched between Adele and Arctic Monkeys no less.

With extensive national support from the likes of BBC 6 Music, BBC Radio 2, BBC Radio 1, Amazing Radio and Channel 4′s Sunday Brunch, Cattle & Cane have been heavily championed by the BBC Introducing team and performed at T In The Park and BBC Radio 2 Live in Hyde Park before they’d even released their debut single.
