The Losing Touch drops their new single titled ‘Through The Night’, to be released on March 13, 2020. Orchestral in nature and hook-filled in execution, ‘Through The Night’ captures that magical time in radio when the songs that dominated had meaning, both musical and emotional, yet they do that with the modern twist that The Losing Touch calls their signature sound.
The Losing Touch had an accomplished debut year in 2019, having played sold-out gigs in Liverpool, Leeds and in their hometown of Barnsley twice. The band released their debut EP, entitled ‘Midnight Again’ on October 17th to much praise, described as a ‘perfect blend between Arcade Fire and Elbow’. Lead single ‘There Must Be More’ received plays on Lauren Laverne’s BBC 6 Music Introducing show and Janice Long’s BBC Radio Wales show who said “just so good, can’t wait to hear more!”
Formed by long term friends and collaborators James Gilroy and Nevyn Stevenson, The Losing Touch takes influences from everything from The Pogues to Nick Cave and Doves to Tom Waits. Their songs span stories of determination, love, death, pain, happiness and all other universal truths. Gilroy provides the lead vocals and Stevenson the lead guitar, the pair recruited Ben Scarff on drums, Callan Mellor on bass and Liam Brown on keys.
