UK rockers Livingston are back with a brand new single!

UK rockers Livingston are back with a brand new single, titled “Through the Peephole”. This song is taken from their upcoming new record “This is a Robbery”.

Livingston - Picture

On this new song, Chris (guitar / keyboards) comments:“Through the Peephole” like it’s sibling, our previous single “Show Me the Money” is also a bit of a mutant that has come a long way before reaching maturity. It also started it’s life as a vocal idea that our singer Beukes had written on a kind of a Hip Hop beat. It was around about the same time as a few members in the band were really experimenting with other styles of music in our own time. And when I mean “other” styles, I mean different from what we as a band considered to be the Livingston style. Beukes would once in a while send me one of his ideas so I can mess around with it and see what comes out. And with this particular idea, same as “Show Me the Money”, it immediately jumped out at me.

But as time went on neither me nor Beukes fully realised the song or brought it to it’s full potential. I had made one or two versions that I liked, but it wasn’t until one summer when my girlfriend, a couple of close friends and myself were driving to Eilat in southern Israel and we listened to one of those versions in the car, that I fully envisioned what I want to do with the music. The vocal line to me is very playful and kind of loopy-sounding, you know, loopy like circus or carnival music. So I really wanted to create a sound scape that compliments this feeling.

I kept the idea in the back of my mind for quite a while after and finally when we had finished all the other tracks on the album. Late at night on a whim, I put together all the music and surprised the guys with it a few days later when it was done. It is the last track that snuck in on the album and I think it’s a really unique gem. Now if you’re wondering what “Through the Peephole” is about, then the best way to find out is to take a drive / walk / whatever… and listen to it loud.
