TUNE Stumbleine - And Then He Kissed Me
*** RELEASE DATE: 10th FEBRUARY 2014 ***
Stumbleine feat. Violet Skies release new EP ‘Chasing Honeybees’ on Monotreme Records. UK producer Stumbleine, who has built a rapidly growing following for his blissed-out, genre-transcending music, has forged a new collaboration with Welsh songwriter/vocalist Violet Skies. The duo have been hard at work in the studio, crafting a collection of songs that fuse the dreamy, shoegaze atmosphere and beats for which Stumbleine (aka Peter Cooper) is beloved by many, with a more classic pop sensibility, framed in the soulful vocals of Violet Skies.
It includes a modern update of the Phil Spector classic ‘And Then He Kissed Me’, nods to 80’s shoegaze artists like The Cocteau Twins’, post-dubstep and R’N’B, with songs that drift serenely between heartache and ecstasy. The music still retains the trademark lush production that Stumbleine is noted for, with strong melody lines and compelling lyrics penned by Violet Skies A full-length follow-up album is scheduled for release in April 2014.
