In celebration of what will be Get Cape’s first UK tour run for over four years, Sam and his band are delighted to mark the occasion with the release of new single 'Animate'.
Hitting the road with a full live band, Sam Duckworth and co. will play an unmissable headline hometown gig at Southend’s Chinnery’s venue on 12 May 2018 before supporting Frank Turner at the Lost Evenings II festival at London Roundhouse on 14 May as well as making other appearances at the likes of Liverpool’s EBGBs, Handmade Festival and more throughout the month of May.
Listen to 'Animate' below.
“These days shortcuts are easy. Whether it's ‘wikipediaing' in a pub quiz or reading the spoilers, technology has made it easier to know it all. By taking a step back from the digital realm, sometimes we are able to feel suspense and uncertainty, in their more forgiving forms. Life is moving so fast, for me, it’s been a case of working out which shortcuts I like and which pre-digital elements of my life I want to retain. Sometimes, that longer car journey is a better experience." muses Sam Duckworth as he takes a step back for a moment’s tranquil contemplation and observation on this dreamy cut from acclaimed latest album Young Adult.
Washed in a hazy reverb and bejeweled with sequined synthesiser lines, ‘Animate’ is a mellow, reflective and utterly joyous new single to soundtrack the sleepy awakening of spring.
After a four year recording hiatus from the moniker, Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly. returned with his sumptuous new album Young Adult in January 2018. Featuring a string of equally different and individually brilliant singles including 'Adults', 'Always', 'Just A Phase', 'DNA', and ‘VHS Forever’, the album was met with warm reviews, with Louder Than War praising Sam’s skill for “catchy and introspective 3 minute pop songs”, while Upset Magazine championed the record as a “soundtrack to a revolution” (4/5).
Making his return to the live stage with a triumphant one-off UK show at Village Underground in London back in January to mark the release of Young Adult (a show hailed by The Independent as “a heartfelt and raucous performance” (4/5)), Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly is well and truly back. Catch Sam and band at the following shows:
