Newcastle four-piece The Old Pink House release new cosmic-pop single ‘Neck Deep’, continuing their neon march of 80s infused singles
The Old Pink House ~ ‘Neck Deep’
“The Newcastle based trio brim with life and invention” Clash
Newcastle trio The Old Pink House have been causing a stir locally and beyond over the past 12 months with a string of 80s inflected cosmic-pop singles, and new cut ‘NECK DEEP’ continues the neon march. TOPH are taking a further step into the national scene’s collective consciousness.
A swirling riff begins proceedings, leading into a verse showcasing Christopher Brown’s imperious vocals, which then deliver the track’s central hook with swagger. “’Neck Deep’ was one of the first tracks that was written collaboratively as a band.” Brown explains, “Previously our process had been a lot more singular, but this song came together really naturally in our dingy little rehearsal room. I don’t usually like to say what songs are specifically about, but at its core, it’s ultimately about how relationships can be swallowed up by secrets.”
Supported by Huw Stephens and Phil Taggart at Radio 1, and making appearances at some of the UK’s premiere tastemaker festivals in Neighbourhood, Twisterella and Meet the North, as well as support slots with the likes of Anteros and The Amazons, TOPH are breaking beyond the boundaries of their North East nest.
Following a sell-out at their July headline show at Jumpin’ Jacks in Newcastle, they’re taking in the city’s prestigious Think Tank on October 27th with tickets selling fast. They’ll also be playing Live at Leeds’ Ones to Watch show in November at The Wardrobe.
‘NECK DEEP’ is self-released and out now on all streaming and download platforms.
27th October – Newcastle, Think Tank
25th November – Leeds, The Wardrobe
