EP release: "Settled" by Prawn
Release date: 27 November 2014
Label: Topshelf Records
More information: on band's Facebook page
On 27th November 2014, NJ indie rock outfit Prawn will digitally release a new EP titled 'Settled', featuring two b-sides from their 'Kingfisher' recording session. Additionally, the EP will be available on vinyl, as a limited edition 7" for Record Store Day on Black Friday, 27th November 2014.
The two tracks ("Settled" and ""Built For") were originally slated to appear on the 'Kingfisher' LP, so Topshelf Records will also digitally release a deluxe version of the LP on 25th November 2014, which includes both songs in the original sequence that the band intended.
Guitarist/vocalist Tony Clark explains, "Last year we set out to write a full length record, which eventually became Kingfisher. We wrote and recorded a total of 12 songs, of which only 10 made the final cut. We had to cut two songs and shuffle the order to make it onto a 12" vinyl. The two songs we left off our personally some of our favorites and we thought they deserved a proper release. The good folks at Topshelf agreed and hence the Settled 7".
Last seen on the road as part of the first ever Topshelf Records Tour, with label mates A Great Big Pile of Leaves, Diamond Youth and Field Mouse, Prawn will kick off their UK tour with Gnarwolves on November 10th.
