A little milestone here with the 50th I met Martin from Kascarade on Twitter. After a couple clicks, asked if they might be in sharing a song on here. Click play on this Leeds/Halifax area group and enjoy this superb video. Read the story behind their song below.
Story Behind “Rise Again”
On a cold January winters morning we took to the hills in beautiful West Yorkshire. Where the members of kascarade prepared to film on location at Ilkley “Cow and Calf”.
Featuring Matthew Milnes (Lead Vocals) and Julie E Gordon backing singer from the Happy Mondays, and all the film crew.
“Rise Again” is a traditional pop/rock song with driving drums, distorted guitar riffs. Backed up with sharp melodic organ sounds. The message within this track is an urgent call to get on with living, which states “what’s been has gone” and all we have is “here and now” so get up and start again.
We do write as a collective, or build on an idea from a lyric that one member might want to use. Our main priority is to create a feeling within a moment that the audience or listener can relate to.
We have performed this track many times and was always well received. As to the recording process we felt that this particular recording was great as a single but compared to the rest of the tracks that feature on our debut album (Start of it All) we would re work the track?
We are lucky enough to have our own recording studio in Bradford and wanted to take it to the next level.
We are now currently working on album no 2 which we are very excited about.
Kascarade are Matthew Milnes (vocals), Luke Milnes (lead guitar), Carl Bower (drums), Adam Brankin (bass), Martin Horton (keys).
