Hi All,

We're just putting the finishing touches to our new album that will hopefully be released in a few weeks time - Very exciting  :)

This track is a more of a laid back groove from us. I hope that you enjoy the listen  :)


I ‘ll be gentle with you
I feel so much love for you
 
I want you by my side
Just want to be close to you
When two becomes one
When two becomes one
To feel your touch
When two becomes one
 
It’s so delightful
So wonderful
So exciting
So much to fulfil
 
When 2 becomes one
When 2 becomes one
 
Ooh time marches on
But we still have to wait
But somehow we know
That our time will come
When 2 becomes one
To feel your touch another time
When two becomes one
When two becomes one
 
Ooh I want you to be by side
I want to be close to you
When two becomes one
To feel your touch another time
When two becomes one
When two becomes one

Hey John, that's really slinky.  Sweet bassline and I like that rhythm guitar mixed really low so you can just about hear it.  I thought this was one of the best vocals I've heard from Cecille, very natural and a good fit for the track... definitely the laid back groove you guys were aiming for.  Good luck with finishing the album - look forward to giving it some spins.
It's all too beautiful.

HI John,

I enjoyed listening to this track very much. Beautiful vocals and beautifully arranged. Sounds very professional.
That laid back groove made me feel very relaxed, which is a good thing these days. :)
Can't wait to hear your new album  :)

Hi guys, brilliant feel to this one, sounding a bit Sade in places, great vocals Cecille. Fab bass groove and loved the e piano solo, always a sucker for one of those.
Brilliant polished production. Good luck with the album guys!

John, The bass drew me in right way! Great playing mate - love it. And a great song too. I love the vocal arrangement. No crits from me at all. This is quality!! :)

Aye..back of the net with this one for sure!

Bass is fantastic...and everything else fits in so well ...vocals are really brilliant too. Love the sustain and big reverb on the lead guitar...tasty playing as well...there's no point sounding great if your playing is a horses ass!

Cool strat-type rhythm work into the bargain...sounds like you have settled straight into quite a groove there...

In an effort to broaden my horizons and impress European strangers with my extensive vocabulary, how do you say "fucking great" in French?

Yo pomps.

Great bass on that intro and right through.

Digging the vocals,they glide over the backdrop beautifully,your voice has become very feminine.   ;)

That biting,acerbic,soaring guitar solo grabs my ears big time.

It's great to hear you still flying the flag like the stalwart you are.

Hey ! @PaulyX @crystalsuzy @Jamie @ChrisPrice @PaulAds @Skub @Maya Clars Thank you all so very, very much for the complimentary reviews. Yes, Davy, It's taken a lot of work to develop my feminine voice and apparently "Fucking Great" in French is "Fucking Great"  :) :)

Hopefully finished the mixes on all tracks for the new album and getting ready for release.

Thanks to all for your wonderful support, much appreciated as always

Hey, that bass is ace! Vox is great and overall the mix is as well. Personally I'd like the drums a little drier but that is down to personal taste of course. Love the solo guitar! The "break down" at around 1.50 works really well. A really solid piece, good luck with the album!

@pompeyjazz - I concur with all the others, just superb bass Johnno, it seems that you've found your groove with Cecile (that is her name isn't it?). the whole sounds really well arranged, and super tight.

No nits from me.

I wish you all the success you deserve with your Album, maybe well be very popular in France.
