One of the oldest penned tracks with the sextet’s current and complete line up, “Angeline” tells the tale of a protagonist with a lustful pining for a lover, and offers a through-the-key-hole glimpse into the ensuing gnaw of regret that engulfs them as the lover slips right through their fingers.
With its relentless motorik-beat galloping through a blaze of frenzied fanfare and a briar of wiry guitars that lay the path to its incendiary crescendo, ‘Angeline’ is a pulse-quickening work of wide-screen beauty and one that aptly sets the scene for their debut opus ‘Matador’ – out on Modern Sky UK, on 11 January 2019.
Speaking about the cinematic new track, frontman Fran Doran says:
“Angeline” is the first song that was written after Joe “The Blow” on trumpet joined. It’s a combination of the Bunnymen-esque guitar lines that we’re known for with powerful mariachi brass. We thought it would be a boss song to drive to as it has an undeniable raw power and so we initially named it “Gasoline”, which was later changed to “Angeline” to make the tune more personal… It’s always been a big feature of our live shows to open with and it’s definitely seen as a fan favourite. There’s just no other song better to set the mood for a RRC gig.”
