Geordie boys, SMOOVE & TURRELL continue their 2023 upwards trajectory with a double A sider ‘Violet Hour’ and ‘Echoes’.
The former is billed as an “evocative love song” – but a ballad it ain’t! It’s big and beaty, funky and feisty . John Turrell wrote the song and takes lead vocal. He says: I could be more famous, I could be richer, I could be better looking but I won the lottery when I met my wife. Life changes, priorities change, kids grow up and they hopefully find a life that’s good for them. One thing is for certain our violet hour never turns to grey; it just changes and becomes something even better. Find that one person and you’re set for life”. Now you know!
‘Echoes’ is a little more restrained . JT says: “We’ve all had that relationship, the one you know is over and has been for a while. It’s all about the realisation that it has to end for the health and sanity of both parties! The echoes of the night are all those flashbacks, the nudges, the voices telling you”.
Both songs are taken from S&T’s upcoming album ‘Red Ellen’ which arrives October 27th on vinyl, CD and digital via Jalapeno.
