Project Description

CASTLE IN THE SKY BY GENTLEMAN’S DUB CLUB

The new single from Gentleman’s Dub Club, “Castle In The Sky,” is an appropriate way to kick off a new album cycle, as it perfectly captures the overall sonic direction of the new work, while showing off how the band continues to grow musically with each new creation.  Building from the vibes of their recent, soulful cover of Bill Withers’ “Use Me,” as well as continuing the loose themes explored on 2019’s Lost In Space album, “Castle in the Sky” rides an infectious rhythm accentuated with lush, multi-tracked violins, over which lead singer Johnny Scratchley urges his love to join him and “build a castle in the sky.” Scratchley says, “Castle in the Sky is a dream-filled love story where fantasies are woven into reality. Breaking down the walls to find the truth that binds us all.” While that may be true, the interesting thing here is that Scratchley and the band make such a strong argument for pursuing this endeavor that you almost forget that the title phrase itself is an idiom about chasing foolish, impossible dreams. The band collaborated again with Ben McKone, drummer from General Roots (Hollie Cook’s band) and a dear friend and studio partner, to write and record this.

Release Date: November 20, 2020
