& THE SUBTOWN SET
RELEASE NEW SINGLE:
‘IN THE DARKNESS’
THE FIRST TRACK TO EMERGE FROM A BRAND NEW ALBUM:
SET FOR RELEASE 28 FEBRUARY 2020
Sussex folk trio – IAN ROLAND & THE SUBTOWN SET – are delighted to present their brand new single: ‘In The Darkness’.
A real warmer for the soul, ‘In The Darkness’ is a track perfectly poised to stave off the spectres of those encroaching long nights.
“Where do our lives go, moving fast and slow. Speed of light brought us here, speed of light disappears, into the void” reflects vocalist Ian Roland on a tender train of thought many will empathise with in the shadow of the long winter months ahead. “But I can hear you in the darkness, hear you in the darkness” he coos with a rousing sense of hope and optimism.
An orchestral-folk gem that gleams with glittering acoustics, radiant harmonies, and flowing string sections courtesy of violinist Simon Yapp and cellist Brione Jackson; the accomplished arrangements offer vivid colour to Ian’s typically heartfelt and always endearing lyrical offerings.
Ian Roland & The Subtown Set are songwriter and guitarist, Ian Roland, joined by Simon Yapp, on violin and Jade Woodhouse, on cello. They are a #FolkPop #SoulFolk group with a nod to the classical and an embrace of three-part harmonies.
