Cultdreams have announced a new EP, 'The Piano Sessions'.
Due for release on Thursday 13th February, the stripped-back three-tracker features new versions of ‘Don’t Let Them Tell You Otherwise’, 'Born An Underdog, Still Living One' and 'Flowers On Their Graves'.
“It's been on my mind for the last year or so, but wasn't something I’d managed to do," Lucinda Livingstone explains. "I've played the piano since I was 4, but haven't lived anywhere with one so I never get to play. Our producer Bob Cooper moved into a new studio with a grand piano, and as soon as I saw the news I had to go in and do a few Cultdreams songs.
“Originally we were going to do this as a live session, but then I came back from a tour with Nervus stupidly unwell and showed up to the session with no voice, so The Piano Sessions ended up being split between London and Leeds. I recorded the piano with Bob, and went down to London a week later, still sick, with barely any singing voice, and recorded the vocals with my good friend Simon Small (Apologies I Have None).
“We wanted to keep these sessions as raw and minimal as possible, just me and a piano. These three songs lyrically all tie into each other, and we felt like it would be a different way for people to hear the stories within the songs.”
The pair are also about to hit the road in support of their second album 'Things That Hurt', out now via Big Scary Monsters.
