gotta love a song that’s replay worthy… like 2 days straight now replay worthy. “Set Me Free” is previewed from The Sand Band’s forthcoming All Through The Night release. needless to say, we’re into it, and their take on Broken Social Scene’s “Lover’s Spit” is rather nice too.
word on the street is that Noel Gallagher has been on the prowl for a new backing band… enter Liverpool’s The Sand Band. one listen to “Set Me Free” and we get it. that plus degrees of connection to The Coral, and the fact Chris Sharrock’s son (Jay) is in the group, and it all comes together.The Sand Band – Set Me Free The Sand Band – Lover’s Spit
so the good news is that these guys are pretty awesome. the less-good news is that noel’s upcoming tour won’t be solo. guess that’s ok, we still have moments like this to hold on to…
