INTO THE ARK SHARE NEW SINGLE
Following a summer of touring across UK and Europe which included Latitude Festival and The Great Escape, plus an invite from their friend and mentor Sir Tom Jones to support him on tour, Into The Ark have cemented themselves as one of the fast-rising acts to watch.
The duo continue their upwards momentum by sharing their new single ‘Underneath The Sun’ which is out now on their own Blackwood Records label in conjunction with the Kartel Music Group.
Produced and co-written by Rich Turvey (Cabbage, Blossoms), ‘Underneath The Sun’ brings the sun-kissed melodies and sweet vocal harmonies of the 60s early 70s Californian folk-rock scene bang up to date. The song’s vibrant optimism is boosted with lyrics which reflect Into The Ark’s own on-the-road adventures.
Into The Ark are also to embark upon their debut US tour as guests to Sir Tom Jones in Spring/Summer 2018. The duo have consistently demonstrated their ability to win over new fans following other impressive support slots with Paolo Nutini, Olly Murs, Model Aeroplanes and Gabrielle Aplin.
After starting out busking in Cardiff, Into The Ark decided to build their reputation by hitting the road in the time-honoured tradition. They acquired an old van and toured the UK doing whatever gigs they could land, regardless of the town or the venue. Two years and over 200 shows later, and their approach has been vindicated as they’ve developed into a live band that are able to rise to any occasion.
Into The Ark’s previous singles ‘My Ghost’ and ‘Brightest Creatures’ were produced by Declan Gaffney and Barry Gorey (Adele, U2). The two tracks received support from Spotify, Deezer and Apple Music, were added to playlists including New Music Friday and Brand New UK, while high profile syncs have included Made in Chelsea and Match of the Day. Earlier this year Into The Ark were also invited by BBC 1’s The One Show to sing on a Welsh version of Louis Armstrong’s classic ‘What A Wonderful World’.
On their return to the UK, Into The Ark will be preparing to headline The Garage in London on 18th October before playing a homecoming show at The Tramshed in Cardiff on 21st October
