[SHELFLIFE] Everlasting Light is destined to become an absolute guitar pop classic. The album is coated in sunbathed jangly guitars, incredibly catchy choruses, and Gavin and Margaret’s lovely whispy boy-girl vocals. The band uses their 90s indie pop roots to their advantage while mixing in just enough 60s paisley-tinted sounds to create an album that would have fit at home in the early days of Sarah Records. Their Byrds-esque melodic guitar lines create a love affair with each listen. Special guest star Terry Bickers (The House of Love) contributed guitar to some tracks. The album was produced by The Proctors and Ian Catt (Saint Etienne, The Field Mice).
Everlasting Light coming September 24 on limited edition LP (with download code), CD and digital formats. The first 100 copies will be available on limited green vinyl, exclusively on shelflife.com.
For fans of: The Field Mice, early Primal Scream, Biff Bang Pow!…

Just back from an exciting trip to New York. Met some other great bands, particular highlights being Flowers, The Bats, The Wolfhounds, French Films, Alpaca Sports, Hobbes Fanclub, Close Lobsters. In fact there wasn’t a bad act on the bill! We certainly made some new friends, the whole experience was an inspiration! Someone made this video of us playing ‘Dream as I Dream’ its a track from our forthcoming album…Huge thanks to Maz, Clyde, Ed from Shelflife, and Cassolette for borrowing us some equipment! “Cities have sexes: London is a man, Paris a woman, and New York a well-adjusted transsexual.”

Being massive House Of Love fans, we recently invited Terry Bickers from The House Of Love to play guitar on The Proctors forthcoming album. To our delight he agreed and spent a couple of days in the Black Country with us, leaving a warm glow in our hearts! Aswell as leaving some of his signature guitar sounds on a few tracks on our album. Thanks Terry! Gavin’s spare bedroom has been renamed the ‘Bickers Suite’.
2 Bonus Tracks that will feature only on The CD version of the album include Terry on guitar. The 1st is ‘Cellophane’ where the band are displaying some of their ‘Shoegazing’ influences! Blame the conversation in the pub the night before about Mercury Rev and Slowdive! The 2nd track is ‘All Mornings’ which is a little more Biff Bang Pow meets Galaxie 500…
