Remember John Candy? Quickly, Remember...

To celebrate the release of new album The Quickening on 26th September (through Rock Action), Scottish pop experimentalists Remember Remember are delighted to announce a number of live shows for this month, with London being on the agenda tonight at the Servant Jazz Quarters in Dalston.

Recorded in early 2011 at Chem 19 Studios, Scotland against a background of tumultuous global events, The Quickening sees Remember Remember return with the same seven piece group heard on last year’s RR Scorpii EP, yet further embellished on by the nylon string guitar talents of R.M. Hubbert and a full string quartet. Whilst still a playful, colourful record, a lot of the toys have gone and the music dives deeper into darker, psychedelic territories hinted at on RR Scorpii: pagan waltzes, apocalyptic Egyptian surf and Middle Eastern modes mingle with sombre pianos and bleak string interludes, concluding with a duo of songs – ‘One Happier’ and ‘John Candy’ – both bittersweet and stratospheric, creating an ending made of pure, bright light.

Remember Remember‘s musical journey, which began as one guy on stage with a loopstation and a bag of toys, now finds them here with The Quickening, a powerful and exciting listen that promises live experiences just as thrilling. Pre-order the album here.
