about

Intergalactic sound voyager Hairy Hands sets his controls for 'Suns', the first single preceding the launch of debut long player ‘Magic’ on Tape Club Records/New Los Angeles Records.

"Suns was one of the first tracks I worked on for this album. It started life as a simple drone/drum break and grew & changed shape from there. I wanted the album to explore my interest in space travel/sci-fi/b-movies and built a story about a time in the future where planet Earth has lost its Sun. The song follows the young and old of planet Earth on the beginnings of their search for a new home in outer space. The chorus also reflects the fact that we all have a Sun within us to grow things and share our warmth for our fellow species/others and the surroundings we inhabit. . Using an old reel to reel to resample parts (warp/time stretch) of an old Yamaha synthesiser I'd played and adding layers of trombone and moving them around."

Following on from last year’s ‘Battlecat’ EP; ‘Magic’ tells the story of the death of the Sun, the demise of Earth and humanity's development of space travel to find another planet to inhabit. Chief navigator is multi-instrumentalist/producer/singer James Alexander Bright aka Hairy Hands, joined on deck by a motley crew of friends: co-pilot Peter Lyons (contributing writer and producer across the record), Andy Ramsey (Drums - Stereolab), Kwake Bass (Drums - MF Doom, Kate Tempest, Lianne La Havas), Jack Wylie (Saxophone - Portico, Circle Traps, Szun Waves), Mark Rainbow (Keys - Laurel Collective) and Big Dada signed Roseau.

"Magic" will be available on Tape Club Records (WW ex US) and New Los Angeles Records (North America) from 02/09/16.
