The Crows release their first recorded work since their debut album in 2013 with a 5-track EP entitled 'Another Christmas Song.' The recordings were made at Big Jam Studios in Sittingbourne, Kent and were engineered, produced and mixed by studio owner Kevin Thorpe.
The EP will be available for hard copy purchase or to download through the band's website. It will also be available for purchase in various forms at Amazon, iTunes and Spotify.
Track details as follows : -
1/ Another Christmas Song
The collection commences with a jumpy, cheerful, folk-driven take of ‘yet another Christmas song’ but carries the message of ‘let’s do this and remember those loved ones that are no longer with us.’
2/ Christmas Day
Feel the ice biting as people everywhere are preparing for Christmas with the days growing shorter and cold winter days and nights are around the corner.
3/ Carrying Christmas In Your Hands
A story of the lonely person expecting to spend Christmas alone until he/she sees the one person that can ‘save’ Christmas walking along the road, coming home through the festive night.
4/ Snow Over Southern England
Acoustic-driven folk song with catchy melody and sing-a-long vocal lines.
5/ The Other Side Of Evil
A reminder that at the time of year when family and friends spend time together there is still a world out there where there are atrocities committed that are so bad that they are on ‘the other side of evil.’
''I would like to thank the efforts of Mark, Ian and Craig in the recording of this EP. A couple of the songs and the concept of the EP have been on the drawing board for the past 3 years but never came to fruition because of various barriers and stumbling blocks along the way so to finally be able to issue the release is very satisfactory indeed. I hope you like what you hear and we all look forward to creating further new recorded material within the near future.'' G.V.
A very Merry Christmas and A Happy New Year from The Old Country Crows.
