Dignan Porch’s second album Nothing Bad Will Ever Happen will be getting its release via Captured Tracks August 14th. “Sad Shape” shows off the cleaner, full-band-y-er sound of their EP Deluded. Tendrils (their first LP) was more of a solo project (as can often be the case) than this new album.
From Captured Tracks:
“Recorded at Homerton’s Sound Savers studio with Henry Withers (Lovvers / Sharm El Shakes) Mark Jasper (Bastard Sword) and Alex Clegg (Breathe Out), The album was taped live on reel-to-reel tape with minimal overdubs. The resulting album is a thing of raw beauty, its melancholy melodies shining through the fuzz and filth, singers Joe and Hayley crushing you with emotion throughout. “Each song,” says Joe, “is a little snapshot of whatever feelings and thoughts were happening at the time. Often I’ll start a song and it’ll begin with some sad stuff about an ex-girlfriend or something and then by the end I’m writing about time travel. I connect all the parts and make it flow. I think it’s a short attention span thing, don’t focus too long on one subject.”
