North Shields “harcar rock” band Hector Gannet are delighted to announce their debut album, “Big Harcar”. The latter is set for release on October 30th 2020 via GUGA Records.
Celebrating the news, Hector Gannet are also pleased to reveal the video for their brand new single ‘The Launch’. Commenting on the single, songwriter and frontman Aaron Duff says.
“The Launch was influenced by viewing vintage footage of shipbuilding on the Tyne. So many people native to Tyneside are connected to this industry in some way, such was its reach among the community. And the launching of ships were very big occasions. The industry was massively important, and its ultimate decline is still keenly felt.
I visualised the build and the structure of the tune kind of mirrors that. Starting from the foundations, the basis, it builds up to the final push as the song rises to a crescendo, which represents the anticipation and the ultimate sense of pride and elation when the hard work is completed and a ship is launched. I really wanted the piece to portray that and reflect the emotions which surround the whole process.”
