Track Of The Day | Meadowlark - 'About You Now'

Meadowlark have announced details of a new EP of late night reworks entitled ‘Nocturnes’ for release on March 10th via Believe Recordings (James Vincent McMorrow, Gavin James). The ‘Nocturnes’ EP is a collection of cinematic versions of previously released Meadowlark singles including ‘Eyes Wide’, ‘Headlights’, ‘Satellite’, as well as a cover of the Sugababes track, ‘About You Now’. The late night reworks were recorded with a live string quartet to accompany Meadowlark’s own Kate McGill on grand piano & vocals and Dan Broadley on acoustic guitar.

Ahead of the EP’s release, Meadowlark will support Amber Run on an extensive UK tour throughout February. Talking about their choice of cover track, Kate McGill explains: “Sugababes were always a guilty pop pleasure and ‘About You Now’ was no exception, but underneath its cheesy noughties pop front the chords and melodies speak of a darker tone which is everything we love about songwriting.”

Speaking about the recording of ‘Nocturnes’, Dan Broadley shares: “We’ve always written our songs in a raw and honest way that focusses solely on the melodies and chords before adding any production to them. ‘Nocturnes’ was an opportunity for us to reimagine those early versions of our songs, in their naked and premature state, so brittle that they feel like they could snap at any moment. One of the meanings of the word ‘nocturne’ is “a short composition inspired by, or evocative of, the night”. This felt fitting since almost all of our songs were written and recorded during the darker hours of the day, when the world was asleep and there was nothing to distract us.”

Meadowlark are a Bristol based boy-girl duo. They released their debut EP in 2015 and a series of standalone singles throughout 2016, steadily gaining themselves a reputation for their captivating pop melodies and lush production. Signed to Believe Recordings, the band will release their debut album in 2017.
