UK-based power-trio LongFallBoots will release their brand new EP, titled You’ll Know It When It Happens, which features the single “Executive Function,” which we happen to be premiering the lyric video for today (watch below). You’ll Know It When It Happens is the ninth studio release from the purveyors of fuzzy grooves.
The band comments on the release:
“Like everything we do, the writing came together pretty quickly – this EP and its follow up was put together in two or three nights. But we allowed ourselves to take a more considered approach over the recording process this time; we even recorded a bunch of the music with someone else (the awesome Phil Booth at JT Soar in Nottingham) which has really paid off sonically – it’s our favourite sounding thing we’ve done. After the album we put out last year and with Amy joining us full time on bass we really figured out how we operate as a band and what a LongFallBoots recording should sound like, so sonically and thematically it’s the most ‘us’ thing we’ve done and we’re super excited for people to hear it.”
It is the first part of a 2-EP cycle which sees the band hitting their stride and refining their sound after the release of their first full-length album (2015’s “Wait For The Echo”), sounding heavier and more focused than ever. The EP’s lyrical themes revolve around emotional redemption and musically features LongFallBoots’ signature blend of big, heavy, fuzzy riffs paired with soaring melodies.
You’ll Know It When It Happens is due to be released (CD and digital) on February 12th and will be available from the band’s Bandcamp page.
LongFallBoots is not a band that was meant to happen. The band was formed by accident by friends Alex Caithness (KOSS, Cincinnati Bow Tie) and Ben Holdstock (Paralus, Cincinnati Bow Tie) when their other bandmates failed to turn up for rehearsal. Two and a half hours later and their first EP “It Was Duke” was written. The line-up is rounded out by Amy Smith on bass and vocals.
Hailing from the middle bit of the UK, LongFallBoots make a heavy and groovy noise, written and recorded under ridiculous self-imposed restrictions resulting in spontaneous, fuzz-filled eruptions leading to a string of EPs written in a single night and recorded in a weekend. Their frenetic work ethic lead to the release of 6 EPs in the space of 12 months during 2012 and 2013 before bunkering down to write and record their first full-length “Wait For The Echo.”
