TUNE False Advertising - You Said (radio edit)
Manchester trio FALSE ADVERTISING are pleased to announce a brand new single ‘You Said’ which is released Friday 3rd August 2018.
Following a triumphant main stage slot at Kendal Calling festival last weekend, and a performance at Robert Smith’s Meltdown at The Royal Festival Hall, the three-piece have also recently announced a clutch of dates supporting Tom Hingley of legendary Manchester-based indie rock band Inspiral Carpets (see below for all live dates).
Lyrically-speaking, the track is an ode to niggling doubts that build up over the decisions we make, as vocalist Jen Hingley reflects on feelings of indecisiveness over her place in the world and questions that she might be “wasting her life” by doing the things that she loves. “This song is catharsis to me,” she explains. “Saving face over disagreements and injustices shakes me up over time - I constantly look for new ways to let go and forget everything that freaks me out about the world these days. Coming together and screaming 'ahhh!' over a loud guitar riff is a pretty good way of venting frustration - it can work in the short term at least.”
Marking a period of change and growth for the band’s songwriting which has seen them step confidently into a more condensed and concentrated form of their searing and experimental alternative rock. Support for the new sound has already been strong, with the band being invited to record a live BBC Introducing session, due out later this month.
Historically a staunchly DIY band, the trio were invited to Paul Epworth's The Church Studio in London to record the track earlier this year, with producer Luke Pickering helping to capture the sound of a band thirsty to make the most out of a legendary studio and recording space. This single is the first of a series signifying the beginning of False Advertising's forthcoming debut album, set for release in 2019.
The band return to the live circuit to play Humber Street Sesh, How To Make Friends and Waves Vienna.
