Bio

From the first synth gurgles of slow-build opener “The Hippopotamus Hunt”, to the stately, world-weary gospel of the closing “Morning Dream”, The ‘A’ Train’s new “Beginning E.P.” finds the group in confident mood.

As with previous singles “Black And White Memories” (“a sublime debut single” - The Fly) and “Don’t Have Far To Go” (“a lovely, organic, earthy sound” - Tom Robinson), the band draw on myriad influences; from early 20th century gospel through to the current crop of Bella Union acts.

But the songs on the “Beginning E.P.” showcase a finer blend of those influences than the group’s earlier releases, as The ‘A’ Train begin to forge their own voice. Check the calypso pop “Moon Water” (video on youtube) with its lingering trace of their earlier country sound, or the electro touches in the spacey rock of “Advantages”.

Comparisons could be made with various groups; The Acorn, Elbow, Villagers. But The ‘A’ Train’s mix of Americana, Brit rock, gospel and calypso is largely their own.

The “Beginning E.P.” is released to download on 28th February on Vantage Room records. The CD is available now to buy online or at any of their live shows.
