Oxfordshire’s Zulu Winter has released a video for their single Silver Tonguewhich is lifted from their debut album “Language” out June 19 via Arts & Crafts available as a digit download, CD or LP.
“Language” opens with Key To My Heart, a sincere message of love that showcases the depth and richness of the band’s sound with layers of swirling instrumentation. The upbeat Silver Tongue is driven by an energetic bass line that leads to a danceable chorus. Bitter Moon is an emotionally charged track hinged on a powerful chorus, inviting listeners to experience a vulnerable side of the band. We Should Be Swimming is a melancholic pop-song running over a compelling rhythm.
Watch the video for Silver Tongue below.

Today, Farewell Republic released their debut LP, Burn the Boats. After a year-long writing/pre-production process, Burn the Boats was recorded during July 2010 at the Chrome Attic in Crystal Lake, IL and the Thunderdome in Ann Arbor, MI. The band holed up in their home studio and spent more than 9 months mixing the record after relocating to Brooklyn. The resulting LP captures a sound that is best described as atmospheric post-punk with a nice bite of shoegaze thrown in. Burn the Boats was recorded by Michael Coffman, produced by Farewell Republic members Sivan Jacobovitz and Brian Trahan and mastered by Fred Kevorkian (White Stripes, The National) at Avatar Studios in NYC.
The band drew on a wide range of influences ranging from art rock and ambient electronic music to 20th century classical and traditional middle eastern folk music while recording Burn The Boats which is quite evident. The album swings between energetic hopefulness and dispirited detachment, reflecting the era in which we live.
