Well that was a rather pleasant, yet unexpected, New Year’s treat wasn’t it? Out of the blue, Stornoway aired a new song taken from their impending sophomore Tales From Terra Firma (set for release in March 2013 courtesy of 4AD). ‘Knock Me On The Head’ was debuted on New Year’s Day by John Kennedy at London’s XFM Radio. The band further shared the track on YouTube yesterday, which you can stream below.
Having seen the band play new tracks at Wilderness Festival last year, it seems like songs craftsmanship will be the prevailing factor with Tales From Terra Firma and, despite not recognising the song from the aforementioned festival set, ‘Knock Me On The Head’ is no different. Wonderfully whimsical, did we expect anything less?
