Congratulations to Sensorites on the launch of their new single, Just Because You Can.
So what’s the big deal? I mean, anyone can release a single, can’t they? In fact, lots of independent artists release singles, so why is this one worthy of praise?
What’s surprisingly refreshing about this particular single is that brothers Nathan and Gareth Kirkham have pulled out all the stops and provided us with six different versions. This means that if you’re not completely satisfied with the catchy electro-folk sound of the main single with its acoustic rhythm guitar, tasty electric guitar rifs, and trippy drums, you can always delve into the piano based chill-out zone conjured up by Muz’s Get Down Remix. Shifting the pace up a gear is the Bollywood style beats of Rolaz Remix, and the Naked Mix is the main single with the drum track stripped away. Finally, for budding singers out there Sensorites have provided the Instrumental version (you’ll find the lyrics here!), whereas budding musicians will have fun getting their teeth into the A Cappella version and might even fancy creating their own remix.
You can listen to the single online at sensorites.blogspot.com and if you like what you hear then have a listen to their previous releases which also contain main songs alongside alternative mixes. Nathan and Gareth are obviously passionate about their music and it shows in everything they do, from the thought that goes into their songs, to the design of their website and album art. Personally, I can’t wait to hear what they come up with next!
Released on 15th November 2010, Just Because You Can, plus all five alternative versions, is available to buy as a limited edition physical CD, and also as a digital download from hollowholerecords.bandcamp.com
