Randolph’s Leap release another teaser single for their forthcoming album ‘Spirit Level’.

‘Moment Passed’, available as a download, follows ‘Up In Smoke‘ – the previous track also taken from ‘Spirit Level’, which will be the debut long-player for the band’s new label Fika Recordings and is due out on February 26th.

The album was recorded over a period of a year in Glasgow with keyboard player Pete MacDonald engineering, mixing and producing frontman Adam Ross’s sessions at home – the album being completed and sent off for mastering in the nick of time: the following night MacDonald’s flat went ‘up in smoke’ as a fire destroyed everything save his pet hedgehog, Frida.

Ross says of the single: “’Moment Passed’ is basically about stress. I wasn’t taking proper care of my physical or mental health and the lyrics are a mixture of wanting to change things in my life but simultaneously worrying I was too late.

“We threw a lot at the mix on this one,” he continues. “Pete played glass bottle percussion and everything. Oh, and there’s nothing cooler than a cha-cha-cha ending.

“The original demo had deliberately over-the-top autotune on my voice which didn’t go down well with the rest of the band [but it did prove the catalyst for my A.R. Pinewood robo-country spinoff album]!”

Aside from that release, chief songwriter Ross has also spent his time away from his seven bandmates on non-Randolph’s projects, including the lockdown “emergency album” ‘Brakes On Love‘, and several collaborative efforts with The Smart Set’s Gareth Perrie as The Polychromes.
