747s release ‘Rainkiss’

ZampanoReleased Monday 15th January on Ark recordings (curiously delayed press release this one? – Ed)

‘Rainkiss’ is the new single taken from debut album ‘Zampanò’. ‘Rainkiss’ features guitarist Freddie Stitz on hammond organ and The Specials legend Rico Rodriguez on trombone. Singer Oisin Leech describes the inspiration of ‘Rainkiss’…

“Rainkiss was inspired by a storm in Liverpool. The heaviest rain I had ever seen. I was running through it to meet a girl from a train. My heart was thumping – I was falling for her. It was a heavy time. I reached the entrance of the station and started scribbling lyrics in a notepad as I waited for her. She walked up and kissed me – suddenly the rain eased off and the street filled with a strange sunlight. The moment of falling in love, the end of winter and the coming of spring – RAINKISS”

747s have had a busy year – supporting The Raconteurs, The Lemonheads, Jet, Orson and The Kooks who they’ve won the vocal support of. 747s also found time to collaborate with Arctic Monkeys on a b-side, a Barbara Lewis cover ‘Baby I’m Yours’.

To top off this year, 747s have been nominated for BEST NEW ACT at the Irish Music Industry’s Meteor Awards, in February 2007.
