Bristol 3 piece SOEUR return with an electric, brand new single ‘Do What I Want’ (out now) and announce their brilliant new EP, No Show, set for release this September. As with all previously released singles and EP, No Show is again a 100% fully DIY venture from the band, allowing them complete creative freedom over all aspects of their musical output.
Recorded over 3/4 days across both Silk Mill Studios in Stoke and Seamus Wong Studios in Leicester, No Show is filled with smart, pop and soul-infused, twisted rock music. Utilising stunning production and the bands duel melodic vocal, SOEUR create a thoroughly modern take on the alternative with influences from Bjork to PJ Harvey, Shellac to Tool, and Skunk Anansie to QOTSA.
Live wise, the band have worked hard over the last few years, touring and touring, building up a loyal support base, booking their own tours and securing their own festival slots. They have also played shows with the likes of Demob Happy, Black Futures & Orchards, as well as supported IDLES, Yonaka, Dilly Dally and more. (Upcoming tour dates below)
This summer the band will be all over the UK at festivals this summer, including 2000trees, ArcTanGent and Boomtown, and then will be out touring the UK supporting St Agnes through October.
The band now premieres their new video for the track ‘Do What I Want’, which you can watch below. Tina Maynard (vocals and guitars) comments: ” ‘Do What I Want’ for me is about finally choosing yourself after putting someone else’s interests first for so long.” Whilst Anya adds in a different side to its meaning – “It touches on the concept of toxic monogamy and challenges the idea of ownership in relationships.”
