Brighton genre-bending trio CIEL sign to Jazz Life (Blood Red Shoes, Tigercub, Circe), announce ‘Not In The Sun, Nor In The Dark’ EP, set for release October 7th, and share brand new single ‘Baby Don’t You Know’ out now.
Newly-signed to the cult Brighton indie label, and drawing influences from fuzzy indie rock, goth and shoegaze, CIEL have fast become one of the buzziest acts on the indie circuit, with a BBC 6 Music playlisting spot for EP lead single ‘Fine Everything’ followed by an acclaimed set on the BBC 6 Music stage at The Great Escape Festival, alongside fellow rising acts Opus Kink and Deadletter.
Speaking ahead of their single release, frontwoman Michelle Hindriks revealed: “‘Baby Don’t You Know’ is about the routine of an unbalanced relationship. I am so excited to finally release this track into the world. I think it’s the closest to a conventional pop structured song we’ve written so far and the way it was recorded really captures the moment we were at as a band.
Jorge broke his wrist just a few days before going into the studio and I just switched from playing guitar to bass for the band for the first time, as we became a 3 piece. Despite the circumstances, we were really inspired and excited about our new music and recorded this song really on the spot”.
