Martin Carr (The Boo Radleys) on Tuesday 13th February 2018
Formerly songwriter, guitarist and creative force behind The Boo Radleys and bravecaptain, Carr will perform select dates across the UK in the coming months, beginning with a much anticipated set at Tapete Records Celebrates 15 Years of Quality Pop, an all-star live anniversary celebration dated for November 18th at The Lexington, London.
Carr’s long awaited third solo album, NEW SHAPES OF LIFE was written and recorded last year in the Cardiff-based singer-songwriter’s home studio. It’s 8 songs were formed as if under a spell-by soul music, the death of David Bowie, and what proved to be his own increasing emotional breakdown. Carr completely re-imagined his general approach towards making music, moving away from the guitar towards visionary use of sampling, but significantly, focusing more on meaning than craft.
“I was looking for a sound and a voice to call my own,” Carr says. “That was the starting point. The theme was to be myself, to attempt to discover what made me tick, to work out why I behaved the way I did. I wanted to go deeper and find more room in the depths… NEW SHAPES OF LIFE is the first album I’ve made where I can stand by ever word I’ve written. It’s the first one that sounds like me and it won’t be the last”
