Unloved – aka vocalist and songwriter Jade Vincent with producers Keefus Ciancia and David Holmes (yes, that one) – have announced that they will unleash their second album, ‘Heartbreak’, on 1 Feb next year. Following the release of the title track last month, now comes new single ‘Crash Boom Bang’.

“It’s about the devastation of a kind of struggle that brings you to your knees”, says Vincent of the single. “Feeling the waves crashing, the tide of emotional distress pulling, pulling you under to the point where you think you’ll drown, against the will, against all reason – but I didn’t”.

“I felt a little more confident in my stride with this album”, she goes on. “I let myself completely go lyrically – and vocally as well. I would sometimes laugh at myself, about where I would go. I’d go high into the world of opera and come back in low. I just threw myself into it and felt uninhibited”.

“It was freeing”, she adds. “And I kept layering, to get to as many emotions as possible. It was like painting: I was layering to add to the immense, vastly wild landscape of music given me from Keefus and David”.

Holmes adds: “There’s a maturity to Jade’s voice and a maturity to the songs that sounds like this is someone who’s lived, and properly had her heart broken, and is full of love”.

The band are set to play two live shows premiering tracks from the new album at Hoxton Hall in London on 3 and 5 Dec. Tickets are available now. Meanwhile, listen to ‘Crash Boom Bang’ here:
