I was lucky enough to get sent an advance copy of the new Fenech-Soler album, Rituals, a few months back. It went straight into the car stereo (the squeakysneaker sound booth, if you like) and as I was driving around a lot at the time, it was pretty much on repeat for about four weeks. It took a while to grow on me, but in the end the purely rousing nature of the bands music won me over. There’s no bigger test of a tune, in my opinion, than if it can keep you calm when you’ve missed Junction 9 of the M52 for the second time, it’s raining and you’ve dropped your Revels in between the car seats.
‘In Our Blood’ is the next single off the album, out on November 25th through SO Recordings. Have a listen below.
