London based 4-piece Gaoler’s Daughter have been finely crafting their art for several years now, releasing several well received EPs, and receiving the praise of such luminaries as Zane Lowe and Tom Robinson. Next month, they will be releasing their single, “St.Peter”, which is shaping up to be their most exciting single to date.
Produced by Mark Yardley of dance duo Stanton Warriors, “St. Peter” is a dark, yet infectious song that calls to mind the sounds of their influences (Can, Echo & the Bunnymen, The Smiths) without sounding like any of them.
I would say that based upon “St. Peter”, Gaoler's Daughter sound like a livelier version of Chapel Club, or a musically superior version of White Lies. With an anthemic chorus and semi-theological lyrics, this song has the potential to become a mainstay in indie clubs in the future, and I can just imagine how great this track would sound played live.
The single will be available to download on September 26th, but until then, here is a preview:
