THE ATTIC MOVEMENT: WARM LIGHT OF YOUR LOVE
The Attic Movement follow up their debut release, “ Leave The Car ”, with new single – “ Warm Light of Your Love ”. Written by frontman, Matt Williams , it’s a song about the strongest kind of love , the kind that has the power to make you forget everything that came before. Already a solid fan favourite at live shows, audiences are often moved to tears by its tenderness. Featuring lilting harmonies amongst bouts of wailing slide guitar (courtesy of Nashville veteran Colin Linden ), the song’s alt-country leanings are reminiscent of “Smile” era Jayhawks combined with the sincere songwriting of Glen Hansard .
Beneath a skylight window, The Attic Movement flickered into life.
The story begins in the dusty converted loft of a terraced house, nestled amongst the famous green hills of Sheffield. It was in this house that songwriter, Matt Williams , set himself the challenge of writing a song a day for a month . The inspiration ebbed and flowed like the changeable spring weather, but finally after 30 days he emerged with a book of hopeful sketches – the beginnings of something new.
Teaming up with Grammy Award winning engineer/producer , Chris Wilkinson , the pair set about transforming scratchy lo-fi demo recordings into fully formed productions. After assembling a band of experienced musicians they began laying the foundations at Tesla studios , with overdubs being recorded at Fox Den Studios over the following months.
Although most attention has been spent in the studio readying their debut material for release, the band have managed to play a handful of well received live shows . Their first outing was supporting fellow Sheffield band LIO at a sold out Record Junkee , followed by opening sets for Sir Was and Pictish Trail .
The release of their debut single – " Leave The Car " – came in May 2019. A passionate break-up song which features dynamic vocals from Leonie Sloots – frontwoman in Record Junkee gig-mates, LIO . Their latest single – " Warm Light of Your Love " – is a heartfelt ballad about the amnesia of love . From delicate beginnings to rapturous finale, the song features the band's signature lilting harmonies amidst bouts of wailing slide guitar. “ Warm Light of Your Love ” was released on 3rd April 2020
