Beached by Scrimshire published on 2013/05/31 17:08:28 +0000 Bight, a loop in rope or line—a hitch or knot tied on the bight is one tied in the middle of a rope, without access to the ends. “Tasty!” Alice Russell (Tru Thoughts, UK) “That is quite a beautiful song!” Huey Morgan (BBC 6Music, UK) on “Drift” “The loveliest record I’ve heard this year!” Luca Santucci, Stubborn Heart (One Little Indian) “A smokey, and at times lonely, voyage through the brains of one of the most eclectically-minded producers currently operating.” Notion Magazine “A consistently enthralling album.” gigwise.com Scrimshire’s highly anticipated third opus, “Bight”, exemplifies progressions made both as a singer-songwriter and producer, pushing forward from his acclaimed second album, “The Hollow”. It’s an album replete with references to one man’s love for the deep blue sea, songs about being adrift and conversely “Beached”. Once again Scrimshire has hooked up with two of his favourite vocalists, Resonators front woman Faye Houston and long-time collaborator Stac, but it’s on this album that his voice really comes into its own. Scrimshire himself takes centre stage on vocal duties on the current single, “Convergent”, the melancholic “Drift” and haunting “Siren”, as well as dueting with Stac on the captivating “Beached” and with Faye on the rousing “Blister”. It’s not only on the microphone that Scrimshire has raised the bar though – he single-handedly produced the whole album with a more electronic feel, touching on ambient and more dance floor sounds whilst still keeping in line with his soul , jazz and acoustic roots. “Bight” will be launched live at The Old Queen’s Head, Islington on June 6th, followed by a mini UK tour and a host of festivals, including Soundwave Croatia and the Southern Soul Festival, Montenegro.
