Manchester's Shaking Chains announce debut single ‘Midnight Oil’

Manchester’s Shaking Chains have announced their debut AA-single ‘Midnight Oil’ / ‘Drunk No More’ for release on April 21st via Concrete Recordings, along with two release shows in March.

Taut and tense, ‘Midnight Oil’ arrives inspired by life in the desolate lane. You can feel the devastating weight and potential, the sound of clever anger, of distrust and opposition. “Before Jon Voight stood beside the Capitol Hill Building to lick Trump’s ego, he played a far more respectable prostitute in the 1969 film Midnight Cowboy,” lyricist Nathan Mcilroy explains. “This song is a paean to Joe Buck and Ratso Rizzo and their interminable friendship that radiates onscreen, from life unto death,” he adds.

Elsewhere ‘Drunk No More’ sees Mcilroy inspired by Carol Batton, ...
