PRESS RELEASE:

Supreme sweethearts of New Zealand alt-country, Eb & Sparrow, bring you their new single “To The West” from their forthcoming third album, due out early 2018. To accompany this single release, the band will be taking to the road, with seven select shows throughout New Zealand.

On the back of their previous release Sun/Son (2015, Country Music Award Finalists for album & song 2016) Eb & Sparrow have gained national recognition and have become renowned for their self-carved niche and unique musical style in the everwidening scope that is New Zealand Americana.

“Grand, cinematic, and rich with anticipation” Lydia Jenkin NZ Herald.

To The West, written by front-woman Ebony Lamb and arranged with Gram Antler, was recorded in the historic homestead Ahiaruhe, in the heart of the Wairarapa in January 2017, with Tui award winning producer and sound engineer Brett Stanton (NZ/Melbourne). Utilising vintage recording equipment and instruments in the large wooden building to take advantage of the lush textures and presence, the band has pulled out all the stops. The rhythm section, consisting of new drummer Justin Barr (Golden Awesome) Chris Winter on bass, takes a big step up and Ebony Lamb and Gram Antler on electric guitars and Bryn Heveldt on lapsteel provide the drama throughout. Lyttelton’s Anita Clark (Motte, Devilish Mary & the Holy Rollers) returns as the brainchild of the string section.

'To The West' - currently available on bandcamp (other platforms coming soon).
