Having met in London, core members Sam Swift-Glasman (guitar/vocals) and Lisa Sara Jenkin(violin/vocals) began writing material together whilst travelling in South and Central America, playing impromptu gigs in traveller bars and hostels. Back in London the pair spent the following few years playing in a folk collective before moving towards a more progressive, grungier sound and Springh was born.
These influences are evident on forthcoming debut single Silhouette, where the duo let loose with a driven, surf rock style track. Raucous, effects driven guitar are ably complimented by effected violin tones, a spirited and tenacious drum beat all brought neatly together by expressive harmonised vocals - adding a bucketful of character to an already relentless tune.
The band recorded Silhouette at Toerag Studios with Liam Watson (White Stripes, The Wytches, Tame Impala). They tracked live to tape using analogue equipment that dates back in some cases to the 50's. The studio is famed for it's use of tannoy loudspeakers, vintage backline including Vox and Fender amplifiers as well as making use of echo chambers.
The single will be officially launched at The Finsbury on 21st November, and the band have big plans for 2015 with a second single and EP already in the pipeline for early next Spring.
Silhouette is due for release on 8th December 2014 via Springh Song.
