New Music Heaven : The Strumbellas

January 7, 2019

The Strumbellas return with new single “Salvation” produced by Tim Pagnotta (Elle King, Walk the Moon) out now via Glassnote Records.

“Our whole dream has been to make cool, small-town music with just a fun, poppy feeling,” says lead singer/guitarist Simon Ward. “Every record we do, we get closer to that. ‘Salvation’ is exactly what we wanted to do, what we were hoping to get out of this song and record: fun, poppy songs that are sad and weird.”

For the group, which also consists of David Ritter (keys), Jeremy Drury (percussion), Isabel Ritchie (strings), Jon Hembrey (guitar) and Darryl James (bass), “Salvation” marks a stylistic turn from their melancholy, introspective releases.

The Strumbellas’ last album ‘Hope’ came out in 2016 and their first single ‘Spirits’ quickly reached the #1 spot on both the Alternative Radio Chart and the Billboard Alternative Songs chart. The #1 single propelled them up the charts and established them as one of the biggest breakout Alternative Rock acts of the year.
