UK blues-rock duo Amazing Planes have released their debut single "Your Money" on their own label, Black Dog Recording Company. The single is a taster of things to come from the full album release "Broken Spokes" and is available from all good online retailers from Monday October 1st 2012.
The eagerly anticipated debut album "Broken spokes" is set for release in early 2013. Produced and recorded by the two band members, Mark Nelson and Daniel Hardy, in their native Nottingham. The album is nearing completion and will be preceded with a free download track 'Seeking Love' from the album, and a second single 'Waves'.
The recording of the album was split between Old Library Studios and Mark's own studio, this helped with the cohesiveness of the record and also had an influence on the sound and themes on the album.
Amazing Planes were formed in Nottingham in 2010 when the two former studio engineers met up for a chat and then decided to write a few songs together. What came out of those sessions were the songs for "Broken Spokes" and the debut single "Your Money". All the songs on Broken Spokes were written and performed by Dan and Mark and although they had been in bands for years this was the first opportunity they had had to work together. The speed in which the album came together was due in part to their being away from playing in a band and the appreciation for similar influences, the blues-rock sounds of bands such as Black Keys & The Raconteurs.
