Emily Barker & The Red Clay Halo Announce New Single, Video and UK Tour


‘The Rains’ / ‘Nostalgia’

Single release date: 09.04.2012 – Label: Everyone Sang / Linn Records




The Rains’ was written to accompany a beautiful super-8 short film by Patti Gaal-Holmes, inspired by Robert Creeley’s poem ‘The Rain’, in which small, perceived moments such as a walk in the forest, a bird in flight, rushing water, or a painterly sky inform a remembering of the self: “What am I to myself that must now remain?”.


Nostalgia’ first appeared on the band’s second album ‘Despite the Snow’, and was later adapted for BBC crime series ‘Wallander’ starring Kenneth Brannagh, picking up a Royal Television Gala Award and a BAFTA for Best TV Theme. This new version is based on the television edit, released to coincide with the much-anticipated third series of Wallander.

Both tracks were recorded in January at Gorbals Sound in Glasgow with revered Scottish producer Calum Malcolm (The Blue Nile, Capercaillie, Lau to name but a few), having been introduced to him by Linn Records.
Emily says “It was an absolute joy and honour to have the opportunity to work with a producer of Calum’s calibre, and we’re delighted with the results.”
The band are now planning to record a full album with Calum, with support from Linn.
