NEW music from JOSH PYKE: ‘Leeward Side’.
Josh Pyke returns with LEEWARD SIDE, the first single lifted from his forthcoming album THE BEGINNING AND THE END OF EVERYTHING, set for release on 5TH July. The delightfully up-beat number ‘Leeward Side’ opens with an infectious hum of a harmonica and introduces us to the soul of the record.
Listen to it now on Ivy League Radio which you can tune into at the right of this article >>>>>>>>
In Josh’s words “Leeward Side is mostly about action. It’s about letting go, adventure, falling, finding yourself, getting lost, exploring, and being alone, but relishing that aloneness, all the while knowing that somewhere, there is someone who will always offer you a leeward side. It’s about knowing that people will outgrow you, but never your love for them”.
Written whilst on the road and recorded with John Castle (The Bamboos, Washington and The Drones), THE BEGINNING AND THE END OF EVERYTHING is Josh’s most personal album to date.
“This album is influenced by what I’d have to describe as the most intense few years of my life. I feel like I’ve come through those years richer for those experiences.”
As with all of Josh Pyke’s recordings, THE BEGINNING AND THE END OF EVERYTHING is a record of a period of time in Josh’s life. For Josh, albums are a way of leaving a body of work documenting and explaining where he was at that time, and we should all be glad that these experiences led him to write the 11 beautiful songs that make up this stunning record.
