TUNE Co-pilgrim - Cylindrical Fire Escapes (Album Version)
Co-pilgrim release new single ‘Cylindrical Fire Escapes’ via Farm Music on 14th April from their forthcoming album ‘Moon Lagoon’.
Right from its opening chords, ‘Cylindrical Fire Escapes’ hints at the glacial grandeur which is to follow. Co-pilgrim are infamous for their arching melodies, dulcet harmonies and earworm instrumentation; these are augmented here by an untapped sense of space and ambition. Ethereal soundscapes, swirling synths and chiming guitars are driven by rolling bass and bursts of percussion.
As usual Mike Gale’s lyrical dexterity is to the fore, underscoring sophistication and his ear for a memorable tune is as keen as ever. If this is the benchmark for the rest of ‘Moon Lagoon’, who wouldn’t want to dive right in?
Co-pilgrim will their hold single launch at Betsey Trotwood, London on 14th April and will appear at Wood Festival, Oxfordshire 21st May. More dates TBA.
“Mike Gale distils sunshine pop classicism into bittersweet songs that channel the warmth of the west coast 70s via deep pile harmonies and layered instruments.” - Mojo
“Laced with grandiose strings and bittersweet harmonies…plumes, swoops around your heartstrings.” Drowned in Sound
