Guillemots Tour This Autumn
Guillemots release new single ‘Trains To Brazil’ on 11th September. It is taken from the accompanying album ‘Through The Window Pane’, nominated for the Mercury Music Prize.
Written and produced by lead singer Fyfe Dangerfield, 'Trains To Brazil' ambitiously combines a soulful double-tracked pop vocal with thunderous Motown drums and an 18-piece brass section.
“I think ‘Trains To Brazil’ is primarily about appreciating life, as much as a song can be about anything,” says Fyfe. “There’s enough atrocities in the world each day to make it clear that fundamentally, we’re all very lucky to be here at all. And it’s got sleighbells in it. So really it’s a we’re-not-dead-yet Christmas Carol.”
Available on CD and two 7” vinyls, each single format boasts exclusive extra tracks recorded in recent weeks.
