Common Tongues debut record ‘Divisions’ was recorded with producer Gavin Monaghan (Robert Plant, Kings of Leon, Paulo Nutini, The Editors). It sees the band growing out of their folk roots by experimenting with sound and rhythm whilst keeping the honest poetry of their lyrics and journey-like structures.
To celebrate this release, the band are set to play an album launch show at The Haunt on 16th June. With a set filled with charmers from this upcoming release, the show is not to be missed.
Their newest single ‘Pioneer’ from ‘Divisions’, is their gutsiest release yet. Delving into the tradition of intimate singer-songwriting with deeply personal lyrics, Pioneer also reveals a different personality of underlying electronic swells and arpeggios matched by ornate guitar licks. The band explain more about their upcoming album “with Divisions it felt like we suddenly had a group of songs with a rawer, more insistent new edge to them, threading them together. I would say the sound of the record stems from us exploring the sounds we love in music and the world around us and trying to find a way of expressing them in our own way.”
