In the immediate aftermath of The Cooper Temple Clause break up chief song writer and lead guitarist Daniel Fisher decided a career as an Author beckoned. He stepped off that path and released his debut album as red kite Songs For Crow. Montreal the lead single became iTunes Single of the Week in Canada and other adventures ensued. Exactly 4 years on the second album is now complete. Racquet was recorded at The Lodge in Northampton and mixed by Paul Gregory (Lanterns on the Lake). It is a somewhat feistier affair than it’s predecessor and brings the live energy of the six-piece band (3 very loud guitarists, bass player and two drummers) to the fore. In relation to the new album Dan says “It’s mainly two extremes, two precise points in time, maybe it’s about time travel? On the one hand it’s about someone who’s getting older and shouldn’t be doing this and needs to move on but can’t, whilst on the other it transports back to childhood and living in the woods. The two worlds juxtapose and collide. As a kid the world is strange and mysterious yet also full of wonder”. For fans of Blur, the National and War on Drugs.
