Dust&Stone_CoverArt

theLights released their brand new single Dust and Stone via Integrity on 28th October 2013.

Produced by Gavin Monaghan (Editors / Scott Matthews / JAWS), Dust and Stone is taken from the forthcoming album which gives birth to a fresh sonic trajectory for the band and looks to build on their breakthrough with debut album Teenager of the Century. The brand new track features the band’s hallmark blend of lush harmonies and musicianship.

 “Just file under amazing music”        Maverick Magazine

 “Imagine Elvis Costello writing lyrics for ELO”       NME

To say the last twelve months have been a breakthrough year for the band is an understatement. The band’s last single Days Don’t Get Me Far Enough Away was supported by a video starring Radio 2 DJs Janice Long, Alex Lester and Jeremy Vine plus BBC6 Music DJ Chris Hawkins.

Festival offers rolled in for the band including Hop & Barley, Cornucopia Festival, Roots North and Dartington Festival, as well as headline appearances at Lechlade Festival and Cockermouth Rock Festival.

Dust and Stone is now available world-wide on iTunes, Amazon and all good download stores.  Follow the links below:

Two new signings!

We’re ridiculously excited to announce two awesome new signings as both Horse Party and Silhouettes have this week joined the Integrity Records roster (or should that be stable?).

Horse Party by Kate Wood (1)

Horse Party, 2 girls and 1 boy from Bury St Edmunds Rock City, recently hatched a plan to release records that sound like no-one else and either make or lose a million pounds.  First single from forthcoming album “Cover Your Eyes” will be “What Do You Need”, released on November 11th, and they’ve just snuck out a video for it at Youtube – Horse Party – What Do You Need

More details about the single, the album and tons of gigs where you can catch the wonderful Horse Party live will be announced in the next few days.

Silhouettes4way

We’ve been stalking Wolverhampton’s Silhouettes for many months and they’ve finally relented, fallen for our ‘charms’ and agreed to release their outstanding debut album “Ever Moving Happiness Machines” with us early next year.  That will be preceded in November by the single “Gold Tag” which will gatecrash the party in your mind and never ever leave.

Grab a beer and preview the swaggering six-minute full length version of “Gold Tag” at Amazing Tunes: Gold Tag by Silhouettes

Now jump on    Twitter at @horsepartyparty and @silhouettesband

Talking of rides (see what we did there?), Integrity Records are proud to announce that we’re now a major sponsor of those crazy, sweaty, music-loving pedal-bike boys at Manilla Cycling.

Futur Primitif – new single & video

Time is the new single by Futur Primitif, the band featuring songwriter and singer Daniel Lefkowitz, former member of American indie-folk darlings The Low Anthem.

 Of all the tracks on Futur Primitif’s current album, the simple arrangement and haunting melancholy of Time most closely mirror the sound of the band for whom Daniel previously played guitar and wrote celebrated songs such as This God Damn House.

 The video for Time, created by upcoming UK animator/illustrator Hughey Herbert (www.animatedhughey.com), is here:  Time on YouTube

 Futur Primitif’s earlier singles, Nuclear Shockwave and Digital Space, enjoyed spot plays on 6 Music, XFM and Amazing Radio.

“Excellent” John Kennedy, XFM                            “Exceptional … 5/5″ AAA Music

 ”Velvets go folk … very good” Paul Lester            “…dreamy indiefuzz” Pop Dodger

 Machineteeth, the band’s first album since teaming up with us here at Integrity, received a raft of positive reviews from tastemakers such as Musicosis through to tabloid champion The Sun.

 “Very beautiful … 4/5”  The Sun  

            “A majestic album”  A Musical Priority     

 “Heart, passion and existential woe”  R2 Magazine

 “Lyrics that chill and sounds that build a euphoric rush”  Musicosis

 “A classic American rock vibe reminiscent of Dylan and Mellencamp”  Indie London

The Machineteeth album is available on a limited edition silk-screened cover CD in our online shop and as a download from iTunes, Amazon and the usual digital stores.

After a successful UK tour in May (including supporting John Grant at Shepherds Bush Empire) and video sessions featured on Line Of Best Fit, City Sessions and Songs From The Shed, Futur Primitif return to these shores to play 2 sets at the End of the Road Festival in Dorset on 31st August and a headline show at London’s Slaughtered Lamb on 4th September.

Miniature Dinosaurs follow their ace performance at the sold-out Belladrum Festival with an acoustic slot at the Amasing Festival in Strathpeffer (31st August/1st September) alongside the likes of Eddi Reader, The Winter Tradition and Fake Major.  Get more info at Amasing.co.uk
