GAZ COOMBES New Single and Tour



Hot Fruit Recordings/Caroline

Gaz Coombes follows his recent solo album Matador with the release of new single Detroit on 6th April 2015.

A tale of a late night existential crisis set to glorious widescreen Kraut-heavy power pop, Detroit is one of many stand-out tracks from the hugely acclaimed Matador. A limited edition 10” of Detroit will be released on Record Store Day (18th April) backed with a live version of the track recorded at the 229 Club. Watch the incredible video for Detroit directed by Peter Franklyn Banks for Greatcoat Films –  below. Of the video, Gaz says: “It’s a beautifully shot video by Peter Franklyn Banks; I rather enjoyed the concept of having a surreal cameo in my own video… enjoy, folks!”

Praise for Matador:

“Matador’s sound textures are from a wide range of sources: gospel, a touch of Neu!… A trace of the Plastic Ono Band… Thrillingly on the edge of hysteria” The Guardian 4 *

“Inventive throughout” The Times

“Ambitious and affecting, Matador may well be Coombes’ finest work to date” Evening Standard 4*

“He’s made his masterpiece” Q 4*

“By the end, it feels like a journey through one man’s rawest and real emotions… that likeable Supergrass scamp is shedding his youthful skin to emerge as a serious and fascinating artist” Mojo 5*
