Sheffield-based five-piece Gledhill release the astonishing Owen Morris (oasis)-produced single 'Remain' on November 14th, the follow-up to 'Resurrect Me'. Lead singer and centrifugal force David Gledhill says: "The song's about two people, together, going through endless amounts of shit. It's about being in love with someone, staying together through suffering."
Gledhill, who formed in 2004, comprise David Gledhill (vocalist & rhythm guitar), Tom Jarvis (lead guitar), Julian Gallagher (bass guitar), Tracey Wilkinson (keyboards & backing vocals) and Lliam Oliver (drums). Discovering that David's ancestors The Gleds were a tribe who "lived in the hills of Yorkshire 500 years ago and would train birds of prey to peck their victims' eyes out", the band decided to settle on, well, the name Gledhill. "They'd rob them afterwards of course," adds David, helpfully.
Gledhill have one small goal: "to write the biggest, most uplifting, epic songs that man has ever heard." And indeed it wasn't long before label Fierce Panda gave them their big break after hearing a demo played on Radio 1 by Zane Lowe. The band recently signed to UK indie, MX3 Records.
