Old English began as a solo project, a chance for me to showcase the musical concoctions I had stored up after spending years playing in countless bands. Quite quickly, I found myself missing the collaborative nature I had previously fallen in love with, and the project turned into a band, moreover one with a large membership.
Old English could be described as an ‘accidental band’. As I began work on what was supposed to be my second solo album, each individual contributor began shaping and influencing the songs in great and unexpected ways. What was once a guy, a guitar, a synth and a loop-pedal soon morphed into something bigger, louder, and better.
Our first single “We’ve Been Here Before” from our early 2013 LP Prose and Kahns is now being featured for free download at our Bandcamp. A beat-busting remix by Allosaurus is the accompanying b-side.
