Ninetails release ‘Slept but Did Not Sleep’ Out 26 November
“A propulsive display of robust slickness” – 8/10 This is Fake DIY
“A satisfying, organised chaos” – VICE
“New cats Ninetails specialise in percussion guitar-pop” – NME
After a spring which saw them tipped by Vice, NME, Clash and This is Fake DIY, Ninetails return with ‘Slept But Did Not Sleep’, the much anticipated follow up to their ‘Ghost Ride the Whip’ EP. Combining hyperrealistic pop with sleek maximalist production, the Liverpool four piece explore euphoria, lamentation and lucidity on this song cycle melodrama. Throughout, moody minimalism and loop-based composition provide an Eno-like back drop for vocals inspired by sunshine pop, r’n’b and dramatic choral harmony.
Earlier in the year Ninetails were included in NME’s scene report of their home city and a performance at Sound City in May prompted Clash Magazine to tag them as an “Up Coming Hype Band” whilst Vice highlighted them in their ‘Ones to Watch’ list. Prior to these accolades, they’d shared stages with Alt-J, Errors and Tall Ships.
The band will release ‘Slept And Did Not Sleep’ through Superstar Destroyer Records on the 26th of November as a pay-what-you-feel download. A visually cohesive CD package and very limited number of ‘uniquely chopped and screwed’ cassette tapes of the EP will also be available. Two videos will accompany the release, as well as an EP launch in Liverpool and the band’s first London Show on the 29th of November at the Bull and Gate in Kentish Town.
Undoubtedly, this is an exciting time for Ninetails who have already made plans to release again early into the new year.
