The Bright Black announce new single and Sheffield tour date

Manchester’s self proclaimed “ugly ducks of indie” THE BRIGHT BLACK have announced the forthcoming release of their new single Serotonin, out 23rd October via AWAL and have confirmed a handful of live shows for autumn.

Recorded in September 2018 at Catalyst Studios in St Helens, and produced by Ady Hall and Lee McCarthy of Sugar House, Serotonin is a backlash against toxic masculinity and a middle finger to gender binary norms.

“The song was written as all our songs are, jamming in the practice room. It started as a heavy funk jam, but it was when we got into the studio that we had the freedom to turn the track into what it is now” explains guitarist Ryan Flanagan.

Heavily influenced by the likes of Prince, David Bowie and 90’s floor-fillers; Serotonin sees the four-piece head in a new direction from their earlier releases and represents exactly what The Bright Black sonically do best.

See them perform at Couch Compo Lane in Sheffield on October 12th.
