    New single and video – Sweetness In Her Spark – Monday 26th March 2012

    View video HERE

    Lightships, the new musical outpost from Gerard Love, release their debut single, the beautiful ‘Sweetness In Her Spark’ on Monday the 26th of March 2012. Taken from the album ‘Electric Cables’ (out on Monday the 2nd of April), ‘Sweetness In Her Spark’ finds the group locking into a relaxed and breezy grove that demands the windows be flung open. The sunny video for the track was directed by The Forest Of Black and shot in Glasgow.

    From the outset, Gerard was clear that he wanted to establish a group name for the new record, a name that was evocative and ambiguous, that could somehow place the music within a slightly blurry and imagined context. He didn't want to give the impression that the record was just about him. Having settled on the name, Lightships, he sought out a cast of Glasgow-based friends to play on the record that was starting to take shape in his head; Dave McGowan (guitar, Teenage Fanclub), Brendan O'Hare (drums, from the first incarnation of Teenage Fanclub), Tom Crossley (flute, International Airport and The Pastels) and Bob Kildea (bass, Belle & Sebastian).

    ‘Sweetness In Her Spark’ will be available on 7” ( GEOG36) and digitally (GEOG36D) and will be backed with a brand new cover of Moondog’s ‘Do Your Thing’. You can pre-order the single HERE and the album HERE.
