Derbyshire / Nottinghamshire based Black Cats and Magpies have released their new single, Away, ahead of an EP to follow in the spring.
The track, which Dean Jackson premiered on BBC Introducing, takes its lead from atmospheric yet anthemic indie rock akin to White Lies and Foals. Punchy verses give way to a soaring chorus, the sort that yearns for a thousand phone screens to be raised in a backlit salute of indie rock solidarity.
The five-piece have started 2017 with dates at Radar Love in Derby, and a Confetti showcase at The Bodega in Nottingham and Away is the lead track from an EP slated for release in the coming months. You’ll be able to get the track on a limited edition CD at their next gig – check the band’s Facebook page for details.
