Exciting news on a new Captured Tracks album release from Dignan Porch
Optimism is infectious, and there can be few more optimistic statements than the title of the new album from Dignan Porch: Nothing Bad Will Ever Happen. As you listen to the warm-hearted, weirdo pop within, as you’re drawn into their world, you might be inclined to agree with them.
Dignan Porch are not just the only UK band to be signed to Captured Tracks, they’re also the only band in the stable to release a second album on the CT imprint. Brand new video for ‘Pink Oil’ below…
‘Nothing Bad Will Ever Happen’ might be Dignan Porch’s second album, but in many ways it’s their first. 2010’s debut, Tendrils, was written and recorded as a solo concern by singer Joe Walsh. Here, he’s joined by the full band, comprising brother Sam Walsh plus close friends Ben Goodwin, Hayley Akins and Stephen Keane.
Based in Tooting, South London, Dignan Porch began with Joe recording what he describes as “weird fuzzy pop songs” on a basic Tascam 8-track recorder, a collage of ideas and layered melodies that touched on noise-pop, psychedelic garage rock and melancholic folk. “The name ‘Dignan Porch’ doesn’t mean anything,” says Joe (in case you were wondering). “It’s just a combination of two words that at the time of creation, seemed to capture the vibe of the band.”
