Our new single Caroline / Alphabet Soup / Funny He Never Married is out 23rd August on Vollwert records. We’ll let you know where to buy it very soon!! Two brand new Banana and Louie tracks and our cover of Funny He Never Married by the brilliant Television Personalities.

Here it comes….

So this is a mixed (but unmastered) version of the first songs from the album. The rest will be along shortly and the album will be out soon on pink vinyl and download. Please feel free to share this as much as you want, but remember it’s not the finished version yet.

There is a little story to both of the songs (it is really two songs, rather than one on two parts.) I won’t tell you the first yet, but the second one is all about last spring. Some of you were there at the time. I organised Read and Shout, which was basically a big indiepop gig in the library. I managed to wangle Jens Lekman over to play. The night he got here was a bit odd to say the least, but very very special. Me and Hannah went to meet him from the train at Paddington (after he’d flown in) and we went for real ale and veggie burgers at a local pub. Within ten minutes of being there Jens’ phone and wallet were stolen. We spent some of the night in a police station talking about the Smiths. Afterwards we jumped in a black cab (very Jens) and went up to a deserted industrial area where Jens played a secret concert in an art studio to 30 ecstatic fans. It was wonderful and one of the best nights of my life. The next day was Read and Shout, which was just as good and then my first ever indietracks. That spring was one of the best times of my life and I’ll be forever grateful to all you lot that were part of it.

Exciting times!

Well, we’re pretty much there! And it is sounding lovely, I don’t mind saying!

We’ve finished recording all the parts – not just the orchestral parts but all the guitars, vocals, laud, glockenspiel, seligh bells, bass, moog…you get the picture! We’ve just got the mixing to finish now. It’s quite an epic job because most of the songs have heaps of different instruments on them, playing at different times, and lots of little parts. Not only that, but we have these miniature little pieces of piano and string between some of the songs. Simon at studio Klank has been doing a sterling job mixing though. One track, the first off the album, Hero of the Home Counties is fully mixed. I don’t mind telling you it sounds gorgeous. It’s a song I’ve been meaning to record properly for some time, but it never quite worked out how I wanted it. It was missing the string and flute parts which now make it sound so pretty. It sets the album up well because it has themes in it that recur throughout the album and it uses both strings and woodwind. I’ll post some samples up here soon.

In other exciting news, not only will you be able to hear the completed album soon, you’ll also be able to see it performed LIVE at a venue near you (well if you live in London!) We’re just setting up a launch concert with A Little Orchestra and also featuring Simon and Jona from Studio Klank who play various instruments on the album. More on this soon!

See you soon,

Banana.x
