Studio Electrophonique return with the release of their second single, I Don’t Think I Love You Anymore. This forthcoming single is a follow-up to Jayne and is set to be released on September 6, 2019. James Leesley (AKA Studio Electrophonique) spoke with The Fountain about the track in more depth, and that time he opened for Richard Hawley.
TF: A new single, how exciting, what has the reception been like so far?
This is the follow up to Jayne, which has been well received. Violette Records have a rich community of music fans and there has been a lot of complimentary feedback which is great. Thanks to Pascal Blua, the aesthetics have played a role in the first impressions of Studio Electrophonique and given the music a visual platform from which to heard. Gideon Coe and Janice Long have shown love for the singles too; both playing them on their radio shows.
TF: What makes it I Don’t Think I Love You Anymore, tell us more about the single?
It’s probably the most romantic song I have written, which naturally makes me feel slightly uncomfortable, and why it’s titled the way it is. Though when you hear the following line in the song all is revealed: ‘I don’t think I love you anymore / it’s gone way past that’. It’s all played out in the mind as a kind of monologue. It’s too honest to actually be said out loud.
TF: And is the first from an EP or am album that we can see the release of later in 2019?
It’s the second single from the Elp (a new format devised by Violette – the space between an EP and an LP) called Buxton Palace Hotel – out 20th September 2019.
TF: Will you be promoting the record with a tour at all, will we have the pleasure of seeing you here in Scotland?
I will be playing some dates to support the release of the record yes. Unfortunately not Scotland on this occasion but maybe soon.I will be visiting Liverpool, Sheffield, London and Paris.
TF: What has been your favourite gig to date?
The only shows I have played have been opening for Richard Hawley on three occasions. I would say the second of two nights at EartH in London was my favourite. The venue is incredibly grand and I got to play for an appreciative crowd of over a thousand people. I also got to watch Richard Hawley for three nights in a row.
