Splink has been on a bit of a hiatus lately, sometimes life has to take priority, but we’re back on the musical highway now and fired up. In fact the break seems to have kicked a renewed direction into the band. Last week’s rehearsal resulted in the refining of our core set and the addition of some new tracks for the set, a reworking of a Splink classic (Splinket – the reggae based song which gave the band its name), the new Mediterranean style song Meze was given a bit of a workout to knock into shape and the funk/blues mashup Game of Life was hashed out with both Matt and Steve taking care of business of the vocal side of thing … we discovered something that day, their voices blend rather well!
So all is looking good on the rehearsals and new songs side and we’re really looking forward to getting these new songs in the set and trying them out with a live audience … because as everyone knows, a song isn’t alive until it’s been gigged!
Things are also moving forwards on the gig side … we’re confirmed as one of the bands opening the Maidstone April music festival with a nice little gig at Earls in Maidstone on the 14th April, we’ve been invited back to headline at the Crash of the Moons club, held in the incredibly atmospheric venue of ‘Bramleys’ in Canterbury (and if you want to know how atmospheric Bramleys is … our website main homepage photo was taken there). On top of that we have other gigs lining up as well as some interesting new contacts and venues … so watch this space … more news will follow!
