CogDiss PR are excited to have teamed up with ThisIsNotAScene to offer their readers an exclusive first listen to “The Eve Of Invasion”, the debut album from The Narrows.
Since exploding onto the underground Manchester music scene just over a year ago, The Narrows have been tearing apart the rule book and forging their own dark, uncompromising way. Mixing epic, enveloping rock with dark, brooding electronica, The Narrows are that rare commodity in today’s music scene, a band that have something to say; a fierce, uncompromising message amidst a sea of bands too full of detached irony and clichés to notice that the world is on the edge of a precipice.
In this short space of time, they have caught the attention of Zane Lowe, BBC 6 Music, XFM, John Kennedy, Tom Robinson, Absolute Radio, BBC Introducing and Amazing Radio. They were invited to play T IN THE PARK last year, were interviewed for 6Music and set alight venues across the country, including the O2 Academy2 in London. In addition to supporting the likes of Mute Records’ S.C.U.M and Warp Records’ PVT, they were also asked by HMV to play their Next Big Thing Festival.
And so arrives The Narrows’ debut album – “The Eve Of Invasion” – released on June 4th. The album is an explosive, unflinching statement of intent from a band who are convinced that the time is now for music to say something about politics, fear, war, corruption and greed. The Eve of Invasion is currently available to pre-order on CD Box Set or Limited Edition vinyl from The Narrows official website
