The return of The Crayon Set
By Steffen Armstrong
Third Outing are pleased to announce the return of The Crayon Set with the rather beautiful release of the new single Yesterday Man from the forthcoming record Lost Languages. Written by Robert Baker, with the help of Gavin Glass and Declan Lonergan in the production phase, The Crayon Set have returned with a record genuinely rated distinction (we should know...we've had a sneak listen)!
The first single available for download below, Yesterday Man, is one of the record's more reflective ballads, bringing back memories of Gavin Clark with the reflective piano interspersion, beautiful soft guitar tones and innocent vocal performance. It tugs at the heart strings, and add the thoughtful lyrics...
"Yesterday man, recalls yesterdays life
A little toy train and yesterdays wife
He starts to feel cold, his dinosaur bones
are rattling around, in his yesterday clothes"
...you can really see why. The Dublin based 6 piece return for the first time since their self-released début in April 2013, and in keeping with their DIY ethic, the new record Lost Languages continues their signature style but with the sharpness of time and maturity. A record to keep a keen eye on when released later this year and a top effort from a top group. So without further ado...
