The Recoupes deliver blistering sets, not only in their native London/Essex but across the country playing venues such as the O2 Islington (supporting The Hoosiers), Camden Assembly and The Goodship. With BBC airplay already under their belt, the young band recently worked with Gavin Monaghan and Joe Murray (Robert Plant, Ocean Colour Scene, JAWS, The Sherlocks) on their latest track ‘All I Know’ released on the 25th January this year.
“The song [All I Know] came about at rehearsal a few months ago, and made it into our live set straight away - maybe even before we’d worked everything out” explains bass player Louie Cameron. “The reception it got at our shows was too good for us not to record it as soon as we could. It’s about the girlfriend of our singer and is about knowing that you can’t be perfect – especially when you’re young, and feel like you’re still getting the hang of life. But despite that, you find someone who accepts that and you want to give your all to them.”
Recording at Gavin Monaghan’s (JAWS, The Sherlocks) Magic Garden studios meant the band were literally following in the footsteps of UK rock royalty like Robert Plant, and this provided the inspiration the boys needed. “We loved the recording experience, especially the old equipment that Gavin has. Even one of Bernard Sumner’s guitars was hanging in the collection there as we recorded.”
