Sorry release debut single ‘Wished’ on Domino – watch the video now
Sorry are a new London band centered around Asha Lorenz and Louis O’Bryen, two 19 year-old childhood best friends. Along with Lincoln Barrett (drums) and Campbell Baum (bass) Sorry have been making a name for themselves on London’s underground circuit since 2015.
Although starting life with a conventional rock band set up, Sorry’s tastes are wide-ranging and reflect their age and omnivorous YouTube-era musical upbringing where rock, hip hop, noise, electronic soundscapes, grime and folk all sit side-by-side and without confusion. Accordingly, all these influences and more form the band’s unique nascent musical universe – a bold, ambitious and at times irreverent canvas onto which the symbiotic intensity of Lorenz’s and O’Bryen’s emotional and hyper-melodic songwriting is projected.
‘Wished’ is their debut studio recording and follows the recent self-release of Home Demo(ns) Vol. 1, an eclectic, homespun 13 track audio/visual mixtape. Recorded by Sean Oakley (Rick Rubin, Frank Ocean) and mixed by Andrew Savours (My Bloody Valentine), it is an enticing first document of the band’s effortlessly emotive songwriting and command of atmosphere which will be familiar to anyone who has seen their visceral live shows so far, as well as a glimpse at in-studio production possibilities to be explored in their future work. ‘Wished’ will also be accompanied by a b-side, ‘Lies’ – set to arrive later this month. Both tracks will be packaged together on Sorry’s very first 7” vinyl release on Domino, available to pre-order here.
Sorry will embark on a full U.K. tour supporting South London’s psychedelic soul reinventors Childhood on 16 November – taking in Leeds, Dublin, Birmingham, Glasgow, Manchester, Brighton and London – before ending 2017 with their biggest headline show to date at Corsica Studios in London on 5 December.
