Antony Harding brings us “True Love (Under Sheets of Rain)” – Free Download

 A love song. But this one is not about a specific love, or about a smile that made your heart beat faster, or some faded memory of that already distant moment. Antony Harding reignites the magic of his vibrant acoustic pop while outside won’t stop raining, and while it pours, Antony sings of the true love coming back to us, as it always happens. True love found us already in the past, and we believed that was all we needed. But the rain won’t stop and keeps falling on us, until one day we realize we are still waiting for True Love to come back again. “We were always there just waiting waiting for you”. True Love (Under Sheets Of Rain) is Antony Harding’s sweetest new song, produced together with Tim Charlton on the Isle of Wight: “We recorded it on a farm by a lake and appropriately the rain came as the afternoon wore on. So we decided to record the rain falling on the wooden barn! We feel we really captured the atmosphere”.
True Love (Under Sheets Of Rain) is available for free download and streaming on WWNBB’s Soundcloud and Bandcamp.

 Una canzone d’amore, una semplice canzone d’amore. Ma non su un amore, su qualcuno, su un sorriso nuovo che ti fa battere il cuore o su qualche ricordo sbiadito di quella luce già lontana. Antony Harding, mentre fuori piove a dirotto, torna ad accendere la magia del suo palpitante pop acustico e canta del vero amore che torna a trovarci, come ha sempre fatto. Il vero amore ci aveva già trovati in passato, lo avevamo incontrato e avevamo creduto che quello fosse tutto quello che serviva. Ma questa pioggia non smette mai, continua a caderci addosso, fino a quando, un giorno, scopriamo di essere lì ad aspettare che il vero amore torni ancora. “We were always there just waiting waiting for you”.
True Love (Under Sheets Of Rain) è il nuovo dolcissimo singolo di Antony Harding (voce e chitarre), prodotto insieme a Tim Charlton (basso e batteria) sull’Isola di Wight: “We recorded it on a farm by a lake and appropriately the rain came as the afternoon wore on. So we decided to record the rain falling on the wooden barn! We feel we really captured the atmosphere”.
True Love (Under Sheets Of Rain) è disponibile in streaming e download gratuito via Bandcamp e Soundcloud.

Antony Harding – By The Yellow Sea

DIGITAL ART 1

 By the Yellow Sea is the fourth full length album from Antony Harding, featuring 8 bright and beautiful, catchy songs inspired by a summer touring China, the Swedish weather, the end of a love and the start of a seemingly never ending walk. Written and played on an old 12 string acoustic guitar bought in a closing down sale in a guitar shop on the Isle of Wight, the songs were recorded lazily on sofas (with feet up on the coffee table) in Barkarby & Stockholm by Antony and mixed during long tea breaks (with biscuits) on the Isle of Wight by Tim Charlton.

 By the Yellow Sea è il quarto album di Antony Harding. Questa nuova piccola perla raccoglie 8 bellissime canzoni composte ispirandosi ad un tour estivo in Cina, al clima Svedese, alla fine di un amore e l’inizio di un cammino che sembra non avere fine. Composte con una vecchia acustica a 12 corde comprata ad una svendita in un negozio di chitarre sull’Isola di Wight, le canzoni sono state registrate in relax su qualche sofà (e coi piedi sul tavolino) a Barkaby e Stoccolma dallo stesso Antony, e sono poi state mixate durante lunghe pause per il tè (coi biscotti) da Tim Charlton sull’Isola di Wight.

New Single – Antony Harding – (This is Just) the Calm Before the Storm

  The calm before the storm has never sounded so sweet and lovely. Although the lyrics of this song try in every way to warn us that is going to get worse, it’s been a while since I last listened to a three-minute so carefree and spring-inspired pop by Antony Harding. After the acoustic instrumental tracks written by candlelight and collected in “Only Pipe Dreams In The Pipeline ” released in 2013, this new single comes with a different and brighter sound, that falls among the most serene melodies from the Go- Betweens and the immediacy of the old Belle and Sebastian. (This Is Just) The Calm Before The Storm is only the first single anticipating “By The Yellow Sea”, the new album by British singer-songwriter; album which release is planned for 2015. After a long solo career presenting himself as ANT, legendary Hefner’s former drummer has decided to go back to using his own name for this new release. Recorded in Antony Harding’s native Isle of Wight, (This Is Just) The Calm Before The Storm counts the collaboration with Marc Maitland, Tim Charlton and Eltjo de Vries. The renewed energy in the writing is perceptible and is all enclosed in the friendly but indisputable invitation: “dust yourself down and blow your horn”!  (This Is Just) The Calm Before The Storm is available now worldwide in digital format.

 La calma prima della tempesta non è mai suonata tanto dolce e incantevole. Nonostante il testo di questa canzone cerchi di avvertirci in tutti i modi che sta per arrivare il peggio, era da tempo che non ascoltavamo tre minuti di pop così spensierato e primaverile da parte di Antony Harding. Dopo i brani strumentali scritti a lume di candela raccolti in “Only Pipe Dreams In The Pipeline” del 2013, questo nuovo singolo ci offre un suono differente, più vivido e brillante, tra le melodie più serene dei Go-Betweens e l’immediatezza di certi vecchi Belle and Sebastian. Ma “(This Is Just) The Calm Before The Storm” è soltanto la prima anticipazione del nuovo album del cantautore britannico, “By The Yellow Sea” in arrivo l’anno prossimo. Dopo una lunga carriera solista con lo pseudonimo ANT, l’ex batterista dei leggendari Hefner ha deciso di tornare a utilizzare il proprio nome per questa nuova uscita, e in studio insieme a lui nella sua nativa Isola di Wight lo hanno accompagnato Marc Maitland, Tim Charlton e Eltjo de Vries. La rinnovata energia nella scrittura è percepibile ed è tutta racchiusa nell’invito amichevole ma indiscutibile: “dust yourself down and blow your horn”!  (This Is Just) The Calm Before The Storm é disponibile da ora in download digitale.
