The Keys – ‘From Tense To Loose To Slack’

  • RELEASE DATE: 22nd March 2004
  • LABEL: Too Pure
  • FORMATS: CDS, 7″

The Keys return with the third and possibly the best track
from their genius self-titled debut album.

‘From Tense to Loose to Slack’ is out on Too Pure on the 22nd
March and includes 3 additional tracks on the b-side: ‘I
Believe My Eyes Are Over Exposed’, ‘There?s A Place’ & ‘About
Time’.

‘From Tense to Loose to Slack’ is a multilayered shimmering
jewel of a pop song. Blended with the straight out of a
spaghetti western jingle-jangle and alt-country of the
instrumental sound is front man’s Matth?s almost sleazy
vocals telling tales of the darker things in life – faded
love, resentment, indifference – all building up to their
trademark Duane Eddy styled infectious guitar solo mid song.

The B-sides offer a softer side with ‘I Believe My Eyes Are
Over Exposed’ a heart wrenchingly simplistic & enveloping
track, followed by the quaint acoustic folk sound of
‘There’s A Place’ and ‘About Time’.

The Keys are currenlty on the road, playing a few dates with
Love before embarking on a headlining UK tour in March.
