Release Date: Out Now

From the wilds of North Cornwall comes one of the most hotly tipped bands on my radar at the moment so I’m delighted to be able to share their music with you. Auction for the Promise Club hail from St Agnes but new single ‘Moonlight’ has a much more urban vibe about it. Vocalist Zoe White Chambers has one of those voices that seduces whilst setting you on edge as our nerves jangle along with the furious, garage inspired guitars. What is most appealing about this track, however, is that within just over 3 minutes Auction for the Promise Club take on a whole range of tempos and styles. The indie-rock core runs throughout but there are grunge elements, hints of garage and a pop sensibility the likes of which I haven’t heard since that first Sleigh Bells record. Then there are tender, delicate moments that ought to be ripped apart by the heat and intensity of the guitars but, like a Chinese lantern*, this song just soars in the night sky like a guiding beacon of hope.

*seriously though, don’t use them – they mess up the wildlife.
