Following on from the excellent Mind FireTheo Verney has released his latest single Letter Down, taken from his debut album One Small Piece.

Moody and atmospheric, it successfully blends satisfyingly crunchy guitar breaks with a more reflective, melodic side and even manages to finish like a long lost Pink Floyd track.

Intrigued? Stream it below.

 

Theo Verney has announced his debut album. One Small Piece will be released through Cannibal Hymns on Friday 7th July. The record melds influences from Neil Young to Pink Floyd onto his already distinct style to create eight perfectly crafted songs.

The album will be proceeded by the single Mind Fire which is out tomorrow, and you can stream it here.


Theo Verney followed his excellent Brain Disease EP with another typically catchy and high octane offering in the shape of Sailed Long.

With a brilliantly retro glam rock feel it is another fine example of his spikily irresistible songwriting prowess.

The Great Escape - A PlaylistToday, Chris T Popper and I are heading south to Brighton and our first visit to the Great Escape festival.

There are a whole host of bands we’re looking forward to seeing, from the South American punk-pop of Las Kellies, the angst of Gambles, the spectral folk of Mirel Wagner and the junkyard blues of the Amazing Snakeheads, to the stoned slacker indie of Dune Rats and the growling garage of Theo Verney.

Perhaps best of all though is that element of surprise, the anticipation of stumbling across something new that makes an event like this such good fun. And there is plenty of scope for that here with over 400 bands playing sets. Happy days.

Until then, have a listen to some of the highlights that we have already picked out – these are all high on our must-see list…a twenty five song salute!

Free Download From Theo Verney

Like The Dune Rats, Theo Verney is high on our “must-see” list at the Great Escape Festival. He has given details on his impending new single, Sound Machine, to be released on Hate Hate Hate.

Highlighted by its entrancing, introductory guitar lines that dip and drone into a 70s progressive groove-ridden feel, Sound Machine is a typically busy Theo Verney track that picks up exactly where his latest EP Heavy Sunn left off.

Download it here.

Introducing >>> Theo Verney

On his new five track EP, Heavy Sunn, Theo Verney practises a kind of gnarled, grizzly mix of garage rock, psychedelia and grunge that more than pays its dues to his heroes Hendrix, Beefheart and Black Sabbath.

Here are two tracks from it, the primal, sullen psych-rock overload of the excellent title track and the ninety second stomp of Count It Up.

Out on October 21st from Hate Hate Hate Records.
