London alternative-bluesy band LOCKS have announced the release of lead track Wishbone taken from debut EP Rattle Them Bones out on November 21st, and it would be great if you might consider a feature:
LOCKS – Wishbone
LOCKS are a trio made up of Locks Geary-Griffin (lead vocal / guitar), Mike Byrne (double bass) and Marian McClenagan (fiddle). The EP has a subtle fixation on the darker, unnerving aspects of life and death all whilst keeping a jaunty, up-beat roots based rhythm flowing underneath. Locks’ vocal has a unique tone, which has been championed by BBC 6music’s Steve Lamacq and previously featured on his roundtable show.
Lead track “Wishbone” is about “something” that should never have been let loose and the simplicity of the video shot entirely on a iPhone lets you conjure up your own macabre images from the words alone. Locks hypnotically types out the lyrics on a vintage typewriter and this focuses you back to the sinister meaning of the story of the song.
LOCKS are a must see live combining their intimate shows with an air of unsettling oddness.
18th November – New Cross Inn, supporting Bess Atwell, London
