Following the recent release of Saint Saviour’s critically acclaimed album ‘In The Seams’, Becky Jones announces new single ‘Bang’, is coming out 2nd March 2015 on Surface Area Records.
‘Bang’ is a sparse and fragile song about ill-fated love, inspired by the Nebraska spree murders of 1957. ‘Bang’ is accompanied by a wonderfully melancholic video featuring Jones for the first time. Watch Here
‘In The Seams’ is a selection of twelve, honest and heart-felt stories about Becky Jones’ Teesside upbringing as well as a lament to lost youth. Gone are the electro, pop structures of her earlier albums; in their place come infinitely subtle arrangements from Bill Ryder-Jones and accompaniment by Manchester Camerata orchestra. ‘In The Seams’ is enjoying worldwide adoration from the likes of The New York Times and iTunes USA, who named her last single ‘Let It Go’ Single Of The Week.
Saint Saviour has just finished a sold-out UK co-headline tour with Bill Ryder Jones and today has announced the details of a headline show at London Wilton’s Music Hall on Wednesday 1st April. Tickets are on sale 9am Friday 13th February and will be available at www.gigsandtours.com
