To Celebrate World Goth Day on 22nd May Nottingham Post Punk band Hurtsfall release their new single The Power. It will be available for free on the band’s Bandcamp page for 1 week only:
(Link Goes live on 22nd May)
The band are giving away the track as a big thank you to the goth scene, podcasts, radio shows, djs and blogs for all the support they have given them.
Hurtsfall’s distinctive sound was born from the loss of the bands original guitarist. After deciding not to replace him Mike swapped his Bass for a Bass VI to fill out the band’s sound and an evocative new sound emerged redolent of classic Joy Division/New Order and The Cure.
The Power was recorded and produced by Mark Parkins at Nottingham’s Psyrex Soundlab. Vocalist Sam describes The Power as a “catchy call for unity in divided times. I often write about personal feelings but this time I was inspired to look outward and do a straight up 80s-style protest song. The drums and bass are quite primal and raw, and the keyboards are more futuristic. My voice flips between styles and glues it all together.”
