Yorkshire Bands Flawes, Cold Culprits and Burning Condors Release New Material
Three bands previously featured in On: Magazine‘s section for up-and-coming Yorkshire music talent have released new material.
Burning Condors from Leeds unleash ‘Live at Cowshed’, a collection which highlights the raw live edge of the band’s rootsy Americana and gritty British guitar sound. The album was recorded live to tape, over one gruelling day, during the same period as their debut EP.
Cold Culprits, from York – essentially the vehicle of one-man collective Andy Watson – returns to basics with new single ‘Sweet Apathy’, an unapologetic anthem to killing time. Grittier and heavier than previous Cold Culprits material, Andy says: “The song began with me laying back on the sofa and bashing a bunch of chords on my Telecaster custom.
“Usually I’ll start writing the words first and then flesh it all out on an acoustic guitar, but I just fancied hitting the electric and thinking about gigging. To get the vocal sounding right, I opened my wardrobe, draped a sheet over the doors and sang into my clothes as a makeshift vocal booth.”
Finally, Huddersfield’s breakout dark synth outfit Flawes has announced the release of three tracks recorded during the recording of debut album Highlights.
The three bonus tracks ‘Number One’,‘I’m Letting Go’ and ‘Turn Back Around’ mark the closing of an exciting chapter for the band, who have been releasing music from ‘Highlights’ over the course of 18 months. These three tracks are a primer for the reveal of brand new music, which is set to come later in the year.
Speaking about ‘Number One’, singer JC says: “It’s ultimately a break up song, a look back at a failed relationship and reminiscing ‘what could have been’. It takes a different structural approach to normal which I love, it’s almost like two songs glued together. It’s going to be a fun one to play live.”
