MUSIC NEWS: James and the Cold Gun Release New Single ‘Plug Me In’
James and the Cold Gun have released their new single Plug Me In via Venn Records.
“’Plug Me In’ is a love letter to volume, it’s for the times where you feel completely lost and rely on music to make you ‘feel something. The past year has been difficult for us all and I think nearly everyone can relate to feelings of helplessness or feeling like ‘groundhog day’—getting into a garage and turning our amps up as loud as possible has been such a cathartic release for us,” says guitarist James Joseph (ex-Holding Absence).
The track is the follow-up to previous single Long Way Home and features a special guitar ‘solo’ at the end of the track played by eight different people; all of the band members, producer Adrian Bushby, his assistant engineer, photographer friend of the band Feisal Khazragi, and their drummer’s girlfriend Chloe.
“We thought it’d be funny to just let everyone have a go at ripping a solo and making some weird noises even if they’ve never played guitar before. With our music, I really want to encourage more people to give playing guitar a go, you don’t have to be technically proficient, you just have to have fun with it!,” comments Joseph.
