    CD version on Tre Accordi Records

    After four singles (“Common Shell”, “Boys and Girls”, “Lie” and the 2012 single on Bachelor, called “Rainbow”) that sold out in a flash, an album for one of the most prestigious power-pop labels already in its second pressing, raving reviews on both sides of the Atlantic, two US tours and lots of dates all across Europe, Miss Chain & The Broken Heels are once again among us.

    We had left them with “A Bittersweet Ride”, the LP which was released two years ago on Screaming Apple / Burger / Sonic Jett Records. Two years of relentless touring and personal change. Miss Chain was then singing about being 25 years old and the bittersweet thoughts and preoccupations that come with such an age. Now, two years later, the girl has become a woman: this journey has finally seen the light of dawn, it has changed its nature, turned into a rite of passage. Her thoughts have become a stream of introspection that is equal parts light and darkness, reason and spirituality, demons and hopes. Following this transformation, the music itself has changed, pushing the melodies beyond the usual rock ’n’roll/garage blueprint, such as we were used to.

    “The Dawn” stems from the common effort of the band together with producer Pierluigi Ballarin (The R’s) at T.U.P. Studio in Brescia (Italy). Two weeks of live recordings on tape to capture the joy of experimenting in a studio yielded a perfect blend of warm, thick and surrounding sound: it is a complex record that deploys a vast array of sounds, so deep that sometimes you find yourself drifting away with your eyes closed, totally immersed in a mixture of country, rhythm’n’blues, pop and Beatles-esque melodies, surrounded by dreamy landscapes, sometimes even bordering on psychedelia. References to Sixties melodies and sunshine pop are the ideal framing for a record whose sound and content is at the same moment timeless and steeped in the contemporary, the soundtrack to an internal journey which contemplates life and its baggage but it’s not afraid of its dark corners.

    It will be an intense 2013 for Astrid, Silva, Franz and Brown: USA, Canada, Japan are waiting for them at the end of the summer, while starting in March they will travel extensively through Italy and Europe to promote their new record in the best way they can: by being on a stage, in front of their audience, spreading their energy through their music and, even if for a little while, taking you along for the ride.
