About this item

Brix & The Extricated release their 3rd single this year to herald their highly anticipated debut album Part 2 (Out 22/9/17). A change in mood and tempo from the previous two punk-pop statements of intent, Moonrise Kingdom conveys sunshine and psychedelia with beautiful layers of guitar jangle and vocal harmonies. The B side, remix version by producer John Reynolds adds another dimension to the journey with its hypnotic and atmospheric drum & bass electronic to take you beyond in sonic convergence. "Part 2 is a terrific debut album!

While having elements of vintage Fall, Brix & The Extricated also bring the raw power of the Stooges, the pop sensibility of prime Blondie, walls of big glam rock guitars and dollops of psychedelia." Dave Simpson (The Guardian) Formed by the visionary Brix Smith Start (vocals / guitar) and legendary bass player Stephen Hanley, Brix & The Extricated also features Paul Hanley on drums, which reignites the Hanley Brother powerhouse rhythm section. The addition of Steve Trafford on guitar has brought together these influential, former members of The Fall. Completing the line-up is hugely talented Irish guitarist Jason Brown.

Increasing pressure from old and new fans alike to record fresh material spurred Brix & The Extricated to head into the studio, where they laid down 10 tracks. As anyone who has read Brix’s book ‘The Rise, The Fall & The Rise’ will know, Brix is a warrior woman one moment, and the next she’s stripping off her armour and laying bare her open wounds for all to see – and this is precisely what she’s done on the resulting album.


Laura says: Moving away from the punk pop of their previous two releases, this third single is a slice of shimmering psych-pop that harks back to Brix's Adult Net days.
