Available as a free download with album Pre-Orders. Red Rum Club have today released Angeline, their third and latest single from their highly anticipated debut Matador. Set for worldwide release on 11th January 2019 on Modern Sky UK, the label is currently home to some of the best talent coming out the UK. Including Blinders, The Jjohns and Slow Readers Club.
With thier previous singles Would You Rather Be Lonely? and Honey picking up radio plays on BBC 6 Music (Chris Hawkins, Tom Robinson, Steve Lamacq), BBC Radio Wales (Janice Long) and Radio X (Ross Buchanan, Gordon Smart, John Kennedy), Angeline is one of the oldest penned tracks by the current line up and frequently opens their live set. Telling the tale of a protagonist with a lustful pining for a lover, it offers a through-the-key-hole glimpse into the ensuing gnaw of regret that engulfs them as the lover slips right through their fingers.
Speaking about the cinematic new track, frontman Fran Doran says:
“Angeline” is the first song that was written after Joe “The Blow” on trumpet joined. It’s a combination of the Bunnymen-esque guitar lines that we’re known for with powerful mariachi brass. We thought it would be a boss song to drive to as it has an undeniable raw power and so we initially named it “Gasoline”, which was later changed to “Angeline” to make the tune more personal… It’s always been a big feature of our live shows to open with and it’s definitely seen as a fan favourite. There’s just no other song better to set the mood for a RRC gig.”
Recorded at the infamous Parr Street Studios in Liverpool, with added production assistance from Chris Taylor. The release of Matador will be followed up by a string of Red Rum Club UK live dates in March 2019
