Good Day Noir Family,
I already reviewed 1.0.8. in the past but it’s out now with a new single and I want to share my opinion about it.
This song is full of passion, the guitar arpeggio won me over already from the first moments when the fingers began to pluck the strings.
The voice intervenes with its high timbre that rests on this sweet melody like a veil.
This song deals with an important theme, the uselessness of the war told by a veteran. All those lost lives, all that pain for a useless goal.
Unfortunately, man is not able to live in peace and always manages to make life more complicated which, if lived, contenting himself with what one has and enjoying the beautiful things that happen to us every day would be much easier to live.
A beautiful song that I recommend to everyone!
Somerset Boys is 1.0.8.’s Single Out Now!
Vibrating and Passionate!
‘Somerset Boys’ has just been completed by Kevin Tuffy at Alchemy Mastering and is one of 12 tracks to be included in 1.0.8.’s forthcoming ‘Devotion’ debut LP due for release in February 2022. Video for ‘Somerset Boys’ now on youtube. The song was written and performed by Andrew Stewart, working in collaboration with the producer and musical mastro Jason Odle, at Developing Sounds; who works closely with Billie Marten, Litany and Ella Grace. The track follows on from Stewarts EP ‘Nine Times Twelve’ from last year.
It’s been a busy old time writing and recording during the past 18 months and the lockdown situation has allowed for an increasing amount of time spent exploring and recording new material. All very exciting, with new tracks constantly evolving. Originally from Glasgow, Andrew Stewart lives in North Yorkshire and works on a wide range of experimental, visual and music based projects. Stewart say’s “Somerset Boys’ is an incredibly sad and gentle song about a lost generation of 100,000’s of innocent young men killed or scarred during the First world War. And for what?”
