Desert Planes are a duo from London who have just released a video for their new single Together Apart. Comprised of singer Tom Farrer and drummer Ben Niblett, the band play catchy americana tinged pop rock along the lines of Kings Of Leon.
Produced by Rich Turvey at Liverpool’s Parr Street Studios, (Blossoms, The Coral, Clean Cut Kid), Together Apart is the follow up single to the debut offering Wake In Fright, which picked up support from Radio X, BBC Introducing, and many more.
Of the track, singer Tom Farrer explains:
Together Apart essentially is a ballad. The lyric came about when I was showing Ben some chords on the guitar… the repetition of him practicing it and saying the words out loud resonated with me. Don’t think he ever learned those chords, but that’s drummers for you!
The band have spent much of 2016 honing their live craft with shows around the UK, including supports with the likes of Spector and Kyko. Desert Planes have also announced four UK dates with Johnny Lloyd in support of the single release – catch them on the road throughout and October.
Together Apart is available via Killing Moon.
