Winsford, Cheshire’s ambient punkers Simmer – Julius Schiazza (vocals/guitar), Karl Stockall (backing vocals/guitar), Gary Twigg (drums), Jake Plumb (bass) – announce ‘Yellow Streak’ EP, released 30th March via Brighton-based independent label Dog Knights Productions and unveil the video to accompany ‘Head Trip’.
Julius comments: “We’re so pleased to be working with our favourite label in the country on this release. I think we’ve really developed and pushed our sound on the new record with the addition of aspects from the noise and shoegaze genres, I’m hoping we can seriously challenge the conventions for our niche.”
“I’m really excited about working with Simmer” explains label boss Darren Harvey “There are plenty of bands doing the whole ’emo / shoegaze crossover-thing’ right now, but these guys are genuinely doing something more interesting than the rest. If you like Nothing, Basement & Headroom, you’ll probably like this too!”
