TUNE James Marples - Use a Little Love
RELEASES NEW SINGLE ‘USE A LITTLE LOVE'
FROM ‘GO QUIETLY’ EP OUT NOW
“appealing folky ballad tunes … wrapped up in thoughtful lyrics” - God Is In The TV
‘Use a Little Love’ is the second single from the new EP ‘Go Quietly' by Australian singer songwriter, James Marples. The track was one of a suite of songs written as part of Marples’ residency at the Menzies Centre for Australian Studies at Kings College London in 2018. Alongside Marples' baritone voice, it features a pared-back Americana sound, and uses percussion, organ, pedal steel guitar, and female backing vocals to evoke the starkness of the Australian landscape.
The record was created with an ensemble of four musicians, Henry Senior (pedal steel), Rose Asprey (organ, backing vocals), and longtime Anna Calvi collaborator Mally Harpaz (percussion). Having drawn comparisons with Howe Gelb and Sun Kill Moon, and having featured on the new album from Mally Harpaz (released via Blind Dog Records, 2019) Marples is setting out to make a name for himself.
The full 'Go Quietly' EP was launched at the iconic 1930s cinema Mirth, Marvel and Maud in Walthamstow back in April and the single is available on iTunes, Spotify and all digital platforms now.
