London’s genre-blurring DIY band Totally have shared a second song, "Ghost Away" from their forthcoming 7" single due out on 1st December on new label, Wild Horse Records.
"Ghost Away" retains the harmonies and steady backbone of previous songs "Falling Apart" and "Moonlit Memory" while introducing other elements of the Totally sound, with lead vocalist Jade joined by Laurel throughout the track. The song is an anthem to modern romance and the "ghosting" phenomenon, told from the point of view of a determined woman refusing to be undermined.
The new 7" was recorded at Younghusband’s Euan Hinshelwood’s 24-track tape studio, Vacant TV, and follows the band’s 2016 debut 'Falling Apart', which was named the 9th Best Song of 2016 by Loud and Quiet and was placed on Apple Music’s Indie A-List.
Totally will headline a Bird on The Wire show at the Waiting Room in December, plus Rough Trade East in January:
London’s genre-blurring DIY band Totally announce the release of their forthcoming seven inch single this December 1st on Wild Horse Records.
The single follows the band’s 2016 debut 'Falling Apart', which was placed on Apple Music’s Indie A-List.
New single 'Moonlit Memory' retains the pulse-like rhythms and expansive guitars of 'Falling Apart' with vocalist Jades’ distinctive, R&B voice again working in harmony — at times in four parts with the rest of the band. Lyrically the track continues the band’s melancholy storytelling and sonically retains the warmth of the band’s early demos — returning to a fully analogue recording — via Younghusband’s Euan Hinshelwood’s 24-track tape studio, Vacant TV.
The forthcoming Double-A seven inch will also feature the track 'Ghost Away'.
The band will headline a Bird on The Wire show at the Waiting Room in December:
Wednesday 13th December - The Waiting Room, Stoke Newington(tickets)
Totally are a five-piece who have quietly amassed a loyal audience since their formation in late 2015. Each member brings their own influences and life experience to the project, resulting in a sound which draws from DIY, sixties girl groups, Australian guitar pop and 90s R&B to result in something completely fresh.
Wild Horse Records is a new Australian/London label rearing the untamed and interesting, celebrating the free-roaming and unclassifiable.
