Lead track from Communion Records new signings
A slice of panoramic anthemic pop here from Kent five-piece Story Books, with the group unveiling the lead track 'Simple Kids' from their forthcoming debut EP Too Much A Hunter, out on Communion Records at the end of the month, April 29, 2013
Currrently out on tour in support of King Charles around the UK, Story Books will cap their spring with a trio performances at urban festival Dot To Dot, which takes place in Manchester, Bristol and Nottingham on May 24th, 25th and 26th respectively as well as a slot at Brighton's music industry convention The Great Escape on 'Simple Kids' is a perfectly inoffensive sounding piece of balladry, with a rather formulaic narrative taking place in the video, of a couple going from boom to bust over the course of the song's widescreen three minutes and forty six seconds. Vocalist Kristofer Harris is most likely to find that his voice is going to get compared to Alt-J's Joe Newman, which will be no bad thing at all given that group's huge success. Indeed, Story Books have already been receiving a fair bit of praise themselves, with both Xfm and BBC Radio 1 picking up on their early tunes.
