UK’s THE BRUTE CHORUS ANNOUNCE THE APRIL 26th RELEASE OF THEIR NEW SINGLE, “COULD THIS BE LOVE?”

Recorded under freezing conditions in a remote village hall in the Lake District this past January, ‘Could This Be Love?’ is the first single to be released from their second album, How The Caged Bird Sings. Hot on the heels of The Brute Chorus’s live and self-titled debut released in October of 2009, How The Caged Bird Sings is set for an August 2010 release date on London indie label TAPE.

An imposing slab of beat poetry set to a galloping rockabilly rumble, the song is related from the point of view of a man who, in his mind, is on his way to meet his girlfriend as his body races through the night in an ambulance and his spirit is called to the light. The seeds of the song were sewn during a dawn trip to the A&E department of Lewisham hospital after drummer Matt Day was assaulted on the way home from a party. Months later the words were set to music and quickly became a live favorite among fans of the band who attended their shows last year.

Could This Be Love? is suspenseful with a dollop of punchy, catchy, and danceable elements. Interlaced with repetitive lyrics, foreboding vocals, and a dark verve running throughout the song, make for The Brute Chorus’ edgiest song yet. The Brute Chorus retained many of their trademarks within this new single, such as the use of heavily reverberated field drums, tremolo guitar, and a desire to crescendo and explode into a head-banging, thunderous roar. Their twisted blues-rock sound is most reminiscent of the rockabilly alter ego of the Artic Monkeys with echoes of the progenitors of punk blues Gun Club, and post punk vocalists Alan Vega and Nick Cave, to name a few.

The single will be released on limited edition 7” and online by East London indie label TAPE, The Brute Chorus’s home since the end of 2009. You can own a piece of this exclusive merchandise here. In anticipation of the official release, everyone will have a chance to catch the video for Could This Be Love? on April 19th.  By the end of April, Whitey will be releasing a remix of the song, sending countless Brute lovers “dancing like a fish on the line”.
