An orchestral-folk gem that gleams with glittering acoustics, radiant harmonies, and flowing string sections courtesy of violinist Simon Yapp and cellist Brione Jackson; the accomplished arrangements offer vivid colour to Ian’s typically heartfelt and always endearing lyrical offerings.
‘In The Darkness’ stands as the first single of a forthcoming new album arriving on 28th February 2020: ‘Double Rainbow’. As with the single, all 11 tracks of the upcoming long-player were engineered by Séadna McPhail, mastered by Alan Lowles at Airtight Studios, Manchester. Initial recordings were made at Simon Yapp's studio, Subtown Studios, in Brighton a fact that owes itself to the origin of the band’s name: Ian Roland & The Subtown Set. Acclaimed producer Nigel Stonier (Thea Gilmore, Joan Baez, Fairport Convention, The Waterboys) also offered his golden touch on a number of tracks set to feature on the release.
