Gary Lightbody previews solo material

In the same week that Eyes Open was nominated for the Choice Music Prize, Gary Lightbody debuted his Listen…Tanks side-project on BBC Radio One when he deputised on air for Zane Lowe.

The Hot Press Newsdesk, 16 Jan 2007

Featuring heavily treated vocals and assorted electronic clicks and beeps, ‘Black And Blue’ is a reminder that, Grammy nomination or not, our Gary is an indie kid at heart.

“It’s me and Jacknife Lee,” Lightbody explains. “It’s a strange, little, dark, country, folkish beast.”

Back at the day-job, February 9 finds Snow Patrol giving a single release to the Eyes Open title-track.
