I NEVER KNEW
TIGERS IN THE STREET
L-space return with poignant double A-side single
I Never Knew and Tigers In The Street combine console futurism-inspired synths with Lily's distinctive and beautiful melodies to create poignant pop soundscapes.
The double A-side release bridges the gap between the band's ambitious critically-acclaimed electronic score, Music for Megastructures (April 2019), and their upcoming second album due for release in April 2020. The tracks were written in Normandy at Vibey Studios with legendary programmer and producer James Sanger (Keane, U2, Dido, Annie Lennox) in November 2018.
The style of these tracks marks a departure for the band; the sparse arrangements and reflective lyrical content were inspired partly by the idyllic surroundings of the Normandy countryside as well as the different approach to songwriting James Sanger enjoys. I Never Knew conveys the desire to overwrite memories of the past while Tigers in the Street tells the story of wanting simply to sleep until things get better.
I Never Knew/Tigers In The Street will be released on all major digital platforms on 04/10/2019. Please contact Gordon Johnstone at email@example.com or 07714735500 for any queries.
Notes to Editor
L-space are Lily Higham, Gordon Johnstone and Dickson Telfer. The band formed in January 2017 to release the home-recorded EP Sol 0 and by August that year they had signed to the innovative Last Night from Glasgow label. Their debut album, Kipple Arcadia, was release in September 2018 to critical acclaim and was quickly followed by the equally acclaimed and ambitious Music for Megastructures. They were named one of Vic Galloway's "Ones to Watch 2019". Their next album will be released in April 2020 by Last Night from Glasgow.
