Bristol-based Henry Green has recently released new track, Another Light, which precedes the release of new album, Shift, out on March 30th via Akira Records.
Henry spoke with The Fountain about his aspirations to come north of the border, what inspired the new track and his pleasure in playing with Nick Mulvey.
TF: You must be ecstatic about the release of your new single, Another Light?
Yeah! It’s an amazing feeling to have it out. I created the groove and the chorus vocal sample a few years back and I was waiting for the right time to elaborate on those initial ideas and build it in to a song. I began to think I’d never use it! I eventually followed a new feeling those ideas gave me and began layering up new textures and creating an image.
TF: And are we to expect an EP or album soon, following this?
The single is taken from my first full length Shift, out on March 30th. I’m excited to share it!
TF: I know you are based over in Bristol but will we have the pleasure of seeing you hit Scotland soon?
I’ve actually never been to Scotland! I’ve always wanted to visit so perhaps I’ll arrange a trip up to play a few shows.
TF: And what inspired the single, Another Light, and the title?
The song was inspired by this moment I’d had a few months earlier. I was sitting on a silent beach in the early hours of the morning, reflecting on the changes that had happened over the previous couple of weeks. I wanted to write about the whirlwind of colours and textures, both in the landscape and in my mind at that moment. It felt like a hugely significant time and I was desperate to recreate that scene and describe the new feelings I was experiencing.
TF: What has been your favourite gig to date?
I think it was probably a show we did at Le Trianon in Paris with Nick Mulvey. The energy in the room was really special. Our last London show at The Lexington felt really good too.
