Sandpaper Walls -Jehanne with The Argent Grub

Post by caprenter »

Hi Folks

Apologies for not participating here for a while - life!

Anyway, I have been doing a bit of music, and today released a new single with a new vocalist:

Sandpaper Walls is my first collaboration with Leeds (UK) based singer / song-writer Jehanne. This is her song (lyrics/melody) with my arrangement of it.

For me, her voice is in the same ballpark as Stacey Kent, Pomplamoose and the iconic French singer Françoise Hardy, and as such, it's been a massive pleasure to work with her.

You can listen free on Soundcloud:
https://soundcloud.com/jehannec/sandpaper-walls-1

If you want to support the artists directly and pay something, Bandcamp has a pay what you feel /free download option.
https://theargentgrub.bandcamp.com/trac ... aper-walls

The track is released under a creative commons licence (so do grab it an re-use it if you want!), and all my work was done with free and open source software. Credits are on the Bandcamp page.

As ever appreciative of the time anyone takes to listen. Your feedback is also always welcome- happy to hear the bad as well as the good (if there is either of any!)

All the best
David

I like it a lot! You brought back a very nice indie pop sound from the 90s (epitomized by bands like Lush), a sound that sounds still as fresh and certainly benefits Jehanne's timbre. I liked this track A LOT, I mean, go ahead! You should do a full album with her.

Thanks @Impostor and thanks @Basslint As always, I really appreciate people taking the time to listen and give feedback.

We do have a few more songs that we are working on.
We've shared the ideas and pieces that we had individually in our work in progress pile, and we've started to share new ideas written with each other in mind. It's a fun process. I'll let you know how we get on.

Thanks again
