Chosen by Monk

My latest choice comes from Brighton doom popsters Every Hell, who are summoning us into the company of ‘The Watcher’ with their second single release. Formed out of the ashes of Black Peaks, the quartet will release their debut EP later this year:

Speaking about the new single, vocalist Will Gardener said:

[It] is one of my favourite tunes we have written so far. I started jamming the ideas of the riff and the sax hook a good few years ago now in lockdown, I kind of can’t believe it’s taken three years to get it finished and out there!

The song is about a particularly unpleasant encounter that I had with a Black Peaks fan in the early hours of the morning after a night out. After chatting with him for a while he suddenly switched up and got very aggressive on me, and I am still convinced to this day that the night could have ended a lot worse for me than it did.

And in terms of production, a bit from band drummer, Mark Roberts:

This was a super fun song to record! We knocked out the bones of the track live to tape at Middle Farm with Peter Miles then brought it home to add the tinsel at my home studio. This is our first track with Toby Stewart (Skin Failure, No Violet, Memory Of Elephants) on guitar plus we had some insane guest keys/synth noise and guitar added by the talented Adam Znaidi (The Physics House Band, The Go! Team) which really took it to the next level!

Live wise, Every Hell have their first headline show on 25 February at DUST in Brighton. They then play Strangebrew in Bristol on 4 May, and have already been announced for this summer’s 2000trees and ArcTanGent festivals.
