“It’s another slice of scuzzy, driving alt-rock… both melodic but also intense.” – DIY
Leeds based Esper Scout have shared their brand new single ‘Dividing Marks’. The track will be available on all digital platforms on the 24th November via Bomb The Twistand Clue Club.
The collaboration between Bomb The Twist and Clue Club has been a long time coming, Sarah (vocals/guitars) explains: “attending each other’s gigs and events for several years, and keeping a supportive eye on our activities, bands and bumping into each other on the way from Headingley train station several times, now felt like a good opportunity to work on something together. Clue Club is brilliant. I started subscribing to get the zines, podcasts and tracks early in the year before our collaboration was ever considered. Thankfully we had the track for it, after recording both ‘Compass’ and ‘Dividing Marks’ coming up to a year ago with the intention of them being our only sure releases in 2017’.”
