Today (March 24), industrial electro Bedworth quartet The Grafham Water Sailing Club release their new single, Ankara, via Static Caravan records.
Ankara is the shortest of TGWSC’s repertoire but one of the most experimental. A shadowy and sinister foray into 80s new wave, it’s darker than anything they’ve come up with before, delicately interweaving layer upon layer of beats, keys and effects with a wonderfully hostile vocal.
Spewed forth from BB King talking about a kerosene-filled garbage can he’d use for heat and dance around in Arkansas in the 40s, B-side Feelin’ Blue is lengthier than its A-side. With an extra-terrestrial melody making way for eerie and almost tribal chants, it’s equally as fascinating. Driving to an abrupt finish, this is a mesmeric debut accompanied by some stunning artwork.
To celebrate the release from this truly unique outfit, we have a signed copy of only 300 limited edition 7″ to give away.
