24 Hour Blogathon : Prides - The Seeds You Sow
First introduced to readers of Breaking More Waves last April, Scottish electronic popsters Prides are back with a big meaty slab of a tune. From the blurb that we have sitting in our in box we’ve learnt that according to the band “The Seeds You Sow is about realising that the things that happen around you are a result of your own actions. It's about realising that the one you're with isn't the one, and the consequences that go with it. We wanted to make sure that it was loud, brave, and would grab people as soon as they heard it. The vocal hook is all about letting go, losing yourself, shouting as loud as you can, caution to the wind.”
This one’s big, booming and from the word go the ‘yeay-yo’ hook screams ‘play me on the radio’. Whilst the musical style is somewhat different The Seeds You Sow reminds us a little of Bastille in the way that it’s pop music but has a bit more to it than most.
Prides have a number of UK live gigs coming up including London dates on the 5th Feb (Birthdays) 20th (Lexington) and the 21th (Roundhouse). They’ll also be out playing at SXSW in March. The Seeds You Sow is out on the 10th Feb.
