Label: Brace Yourself Records
Release date: 02.07.2021
JOHN - the virtually ungoogleable moniker for London duo John Newton (drums, lead vocals) and Johnny Healey (guitar, backing vocals) - return with a new single A Song For Those Who Speed In Built-Up Areas. The 7" is the first release from the band since their second LP, 2019's Out Here On The Fringes. Those Who Speed In Built-Up Areas makes for an engulfing return: a titanic, whirring beast that gestures towards the stranglehold of individualism currently engrained in our present. Meanwhile, on the 7"'s b-side, you'll find a live session version of the song recorded in December 2020. Without the chance to road-test new material, the band decided to make a visit to The Bookhouse Studio in South London to capture the track in lieu of live opportunities.
