Kev Sherry, singer for the critically acclaimed four-piece Attic Lights (Island Records, Elefant Records), has released his indelible new single Wasted Days.
Collaborating with renowned producer Paul Savage (Mogwai, The Delgados, Franz Ferdinand, Arab Strap), and using a guitar borrowed from Tracyanne Campbell (Camera Obscura, Tracyanne & Danny) and a bass guitar borrowed from Francis MacDonald (Teenage Fanclub), Wasted Days is taken from his forthcoming album Foxy Orthodoxy. The result sees Kev challenge the banal, indistinctive sound of modern indie guitar music by reconnecting with the sound of shambolic, loose guitars, catchy melodies, bare production and raw recording made famous by bands such The Lemonheads and Teenage Fanclub.
Kev’s solo project follows on from the success garnered by Attic Lights with the band appearing on HBO’s Divorce, MTV’s Teen Mom, BBC’s The Culture Show, Hairy Bikers, The One Show, Sportscene, Channel 4’s Wife Swap, Come Dine With Me and ITV’s Scotsport and STV News. He has also collaborated with international artists including Bjorn Yttling, Cerys Matthews and La Casa Azul and his songs have been remixed by Mogwai, Camera Obscura, The Fratellis, Jim Noir and The Vaselines.
Wasted Days is out now.
