Media and fans alike quickly jumped on board the ANOTHER SKY train throughout 2018, with Huw Stephens witnessing their Dalston Servant Jazz Quarters Residency and immediately offering the band his final ever Maida Vale session, and the band garnering an early invite to appear on Later…with Jools Holland in October.
Another Sky have just recently released new single Apple Tree, showcasing vocalist Catrin Vincent’s astonishing range and the band’s strength for cool atmospherics and poignant lyrics. The track (given its premiere by Radio 1’s Annie Mac, alongside plays from Radio X’s John Kennedy, and Radio 1’s Jack Saunders) is accompanied by a beautiful stop-motion video, directed by Dann Parry. Apple Tree is both the perfect successor to the band’s previous single Chillers, and also a huge cinematic step forward. 2018 saw the band make a bold statement with debut EP Forget Yourself, setting the tone for their politically charged lyrics and social observations. Avalanche speaks of toxic masculinity, violence and social marginalisation, whilst Chillers tackles the complacency accompanied by wealth.
See them at The Fulford Arms on February 2nd.
