Comet Gain New single and Howling Hearts Vs. Thee Memory Ache Gigs

Formed in London, England, in 1993, and influenced as much by the riot-grrrl movement as by the music of the girl-group era, Comet Gain mix punk-pop aesthetics with a more abstract northern soul sensibility. Magical, passionate and emotional, inspired in equal parts by The Go-Betweens, Godard, Irma Thomas, dance parties, Dexy’s Midnight Runners, falling in love, mod and hootenannies, Comet Gain are one of the finest British bands of our time.

Comet Gain are pleased to announce the second single “An Arcade From The Warm Rain That Falls” from their fabulous new album Howl of the Lonely Crowd. The b-sides feature two exclusive tracks, a cover of Carla Thomas’s northern soul classic “I Take It To My Baby” and an album outtake “You’re Just Lonely”. The single comes out the day before they are scheduled in for a Marc Riley session at 6 Music on 30 August, that’ll definitely be an entertaining show to tune in to!
