The moonlighting SFA man is over next month.
The Hot Press Newsdesk, 18 Oct 2010
Gruff Rhys is very kindly giving away his new single, ‘Shark Ridden Waters’, a “shimmering slice of kaleidoscopic, cinematic pop music” that fully lives up to the billing.
“Help! A song in the form of a large silver shark was discovered yesterday off the west coast of Wales,” reads the rather amusing press blurb. “A mysterious recording was made of it as it swam aggressively past a miked up dilapidated wooden fishing trawler, like some old boat off Jaws.”
It’s the first track to be lifted from the Super Furry Animal’s new solo album, which is due in February 2011 and is produced by Twisted Nerve man Andy Votel. You’ll be able to get a sneak preview next month when he plays the Town Hall Theatre, Galway (November 13); Empire, Belfast (14); and Sugar Club, Dublin (15).
