Earlier today I wrote about the new Snippet album, but what's the link between that and 80's popsters The Farm I hear you ask ?
Well Snippet aka Johnno Casson used to be a key member of Deep Joy who were backing band for The Farm on their All Together Now tour. Enough of the reminiscing though as the other link between them is they're both taking the indie-pendent route and releasing new material.
The Farm are using Pledgemusic to release 3 brand new songs plus a re-mix of Feel The Love, all signed by the band, as well as the new EP being part of some extremely groovy merchandise bundles.
Founding member Peter Hooton said - "We're releasing this music now because we've been playing festivals for a few years and everyone we meet always asks the same question, 'When are you releasing new material'."
He continued - "We started playing a new song Feel The Love recently and it was going down brilliantly so we thought 'let's get in the studio and record it'."
"The song's about positivism and to counter all the hatred around us that we see on a daily basis. It's loosely based on an encounter with DJ Harvey whom we met in Ibiza many years ago and who invited us to a get together on a mountain in the middle of nowhere."
"I'm fed up with all the negativity and hatred, especially in the press and on social media so I just wanted to sing about a more powerful emotion. Hopefully people will get behind the message and spread the love."
