28/2/17 – Ride – Charm Assault/Home Is A Feeling – 2017

Song Of The Day

Ride return with two new songs, their first since 1996’s Tarantula (excluding the Coming Up For Air EP recorded for Channel 4). The as yet untitled album was produced by Erol Alkan and will be released by Wichita recordings in the summer.

Home Is A Feeling is dominated by harmonies and reverb guitars landing in the present from a distant past, a Psychedelic Shoegaze from the Oxford Summer Of Love, everything is in slow motion, dandelions and vaseline lenses.

Charm Assault, sounds like a song that used to be a hit – uptempo, catchy – Top Of The Pops in the eighties or the sixties with no hope now but all fans of the genre will love this. It’s way ahead of any project band members have been involved in since the band split up. Positive expectations for the new album.

    Nice to hear they’re back in business. There were so many great bands out of the U.K in the early nineties.
    These new tracks have hints of Jesus And Mary Chain, My Bloody Valentine, with touches of Swervedriver and The Stone Roses thrown in.
    Catchy and reminiscent of a great time in music. Cannot wait to hear the album.

    Home is a Feeling really grabbed me with its lush sounds and unexpected chord changes…
