Cold Specks Unveil Plans for Free Show

Share Button

Cold Specks have confirmed a very special show at Sebright Arms, London on 21December 2012.

The band, who are currently touring Canada where they were recently short-listed for the Polaris Music Prize, will release their new single ‘When The City Lights Dim’ early next year.

Cold Specks is songwriter and vocalist Al Spx from Etobicoke, Canada, who now lives in London. Describing her sound as ‘Doom Soul’, Cold Specks’ music is steeped in the musical traditions of the Deep South. With a voice that evokes the ‘spirit feel’ of Mahalia Jackson and the visceral tones of Sister Rosetta Tharpe, Cold Specks’ sparse arrangements and chain-gang rhythms stop you dead in your tracks

Inspired by the album track, ‘Winter Solstice’, entry is free, but limited and on a first come, first served basis. Apply for tickets via http://bit.ly/WinterSolsticeParty.

Cold Specks have contributed a track, a cover of Mary Margaret O’Hara’s ‘Evermore’, to Sartorial Records’ All Ready For The 25th Christmas compilation, out on 3 December, which also features recordings by Terry Edwards, Robyn Hitchcock and Department S.
