Following a pair of rather tasty teasers already, Tess of the Circle provides another slice of pure enticement for their upcoming album with new single You Take Me Out Of My Head. Their new full-length, Amplify, has become an eagerly anticipated proposal already, thanks to those previous singles, and now the new track just cements that eagerness and the growing reputation of the UK band as one rather exciting rock ‘n’ roll incitement.
A British independent collective based around the songs and music of singer/songwriter/guitarist Tess Jones, Tess Of The Circle has already made a potent impact with their sound and debut album Thorns, a collection of lyrically biographical songs from Jones bred from a mix of 70’s electric rock riffs and acoustic guitar enterprise. A project starting in 2013 with Jones and a group of live and album musicians within his circle of friends, the band has found greater and closer attention over time, especially since the release of Face the Changes and the outstanding Love Is The Drug That You Crave, the first two singles from the impending Gavin Monaghan produced Amplify.
You Take Me Out Of My Head is sure to only add to that focus with its galvanic rock ‘n’ roll stomp. Straight away it has ears attentive as strokes of guitar and riffs collude with the throaty throb of Ben Drummond’s bass. Quickly the enjoyable stabs of sound become a rolling stroll of jangly enterprise and feisty riffery as the guitars of Lee Clifton and Jones engage in a bluesy hard rock lined persuasion of the imagination. Hooks and grooves are frequent bait within the track, the latter wrapping around the excellent vocal prowess of Jones and the tenacious rhythms of drummer Paul Stone.
Great rock ‘n’ roll has the spirit as engaged and aroused as ears and with consummate ease You Take Me Out Of My Head finds that success whilst reinforcing that the arrival of Amplify cannot come soon enough.
You Take Me Out Of My Head and Amplify are released April 22nd with pre-ordering available now on Amazon and iTunes.
