Animate is taken off his recently released album Young Adult, out now via Xtra Mile.
Hitting the road with a full live band, Sam Duckworth and co. will play an unmissable headline hometown gig at Southend’s Chinnery’s venue on the 12 May 2018 before supporting Frank Turner at the Lost Evenings Festival at London Roundhouse on 14 May as well as making other appearances at the likes of Liverpool’s EBGBs, Handmade Festival and beyond throughout the month of May.
In celebration of what will be Get Cape’s first UK tour run for over four years, Sam and band mark the announcement with the release of new single Animate.
“These days shortcuts are easy. Whether its ‘wikipediaing’ in a pub quiz or reading the spoilers, technology has made it easier to know it all. By taking a step back from the digital realm, sometimes we are able to feel suspense and uncertainty, in their more forgiving forms. Life is moving so fast, for me, it’s been a case of working out which shortcuts I like and which, pre digital, elements of my life I want to retain. Sometimes, that longer car journey is a better experience.” muses Sam Duckworth as he takes a step back for a moment’s tranquil contemplation and observation on this dreamy cut from acclaimed latest album Young Adult.
Washed in a hazy reverb and be-jeweled with sequined synthesiser lines, Animate is a mellow, reflective and utterly joyous new single to soundtrack the sleepy awakening of Spring.
