For Review - The Herron Brothers Ep - Release Date 25th Oct
Following on from their debut album, 2018's "The Last Ones Left", and this summer's 22 date UK tour, the EP develops upon the themes and styles of its predecessor.
"It's been a year since we put our first album out, but these songs feel like they could have been on it" says Paul, "each song, in its own weird way deals with hope for the future, not giving in".
"But" interjects Steven, "we've somehow taken the same amount of time on four songs as we did on 12, which should mean, if my maths is right, that these songs are THREE TIMES the quality of the last lot."
The current batch and accompanying videos are the culmination of a new 100% DIY approach, necessitated by an ever developing range of industry related skills, coupled with "unbelievable levels of skintness" that have resulted in "enforced self sustainability"
"We've borrowed great studio mics and guitars from friends, built our own vocal booth in the flat we share, basically recorded mixed and mastered everything here" Steven explains.
"Visitors wonder why our living room wall is 'Elf Green', and it's to shoot videos against, with a swish camera that will have to be sold pretty soon if we don't start making some money" semi jokes Paul.
When asked if they'd like to repeat this completely homegrown approach for their next project the brothers reply in unison with a heartfelt, resounding, "NO".
Having now completed their UK tour, Paul and Steven are looking forward to all the admin involved with promoting an independent release "like King Kong looked forward to each bullet whilst hanging off the Empire State Building".
