East London quartet Shanghai Blues are pleased to reveal their first new material for 2018 in the form of latest single ‘Fall’ which is out now via all good digital retailers.
The band spent most of 2017 steadily drip-feeding a series of singles which saw them picking up support from the likes of Clash Magazine, Spotify, Apple Music, BBC introducing and Amazing Radio, recently racking up over 100,000 streams on Spotify to date.
Alongside the single news the band are also pleased to announce a handful of select UK live dates for the coming months (see below for details) including two shows in Manchester and London supporting fast-rising Pop Rock band Y.O.U.N.G.
Commenting on the new track, the band said: “This song is for everyone that has ever had to let go of someone important in life. It started off as something pretty mellow and completely different to our usual style, but we felt it had potential so kept hammering away at it. Eventually we made it explode into something special and now we absolutely fucking love it. Playing it live sends us and the crowd nuts because of the pure energy it brings. We have loads more to give this year and we think this track really shows what we’re made of.”
‘Fall’ was produced, mixed and mastered by Oz Craggs (Feed The Rhino/Neck Deep/Mallory Knox) at Hidden Track Studios in Kent with whom the band have recorded all of their releases so far.
