The Last Dinner Party Announces Debut Album “Prelude to Ecstasy”, Shares New Song “On Your Side”
British indie rock band The Last Dinner Party, consisting of Georgia Davies (bass), Lizzie Mayland (guitar), Abigail Morris (vocals), Aurora Nishevci (keyboard) and Emily Roberts (guitar), has announced their debut album “Prelude to Ecstasy” will be released on February 2, 2024.
The album comprises 12-track, produced by James Ford.
The Last Dinner Party said of the album, “Ecstasy is a pendulum which swings between the extremes of human emotion, from the ecstasy of passion to the sublimity of pain, and it is this concept which binds our album together. This is an archeology of ourselves; you can exhume our collective and individual experiences and influences from within its fabric. We exorcized guitars for their solos, laid bare confessions directly from diary pages, and summoned an orchestra to bring our vision to life. It is our greatest honor and pride to present this offering to the world, it is everything we are.”
- From the album, the band unveiled the fourth single called “On Your Side” on November 1, 2023.
The track was written by Abigail Morris, Lizzie Mayland, Aurora Nishevci, Georgia Davies, Emily Roberts, and Rhys Downing.
Produced by James Ford. The accompanying music video was directed by Cal Mcintyre.
The band said of the song, “'On Your Side' is a love song with its hands tied. It's about being so devoted to someone that no matter what they do, no matter how much it hurts, how much you know you should leave, you can't escape. The outro came from a wonderful improvised moment in the studio; James Ford had this synthesizer that warped and delayed and played with the fabric of whatever you put into it. So Aurora and Abigail sat in the studio after lunch and improvised some piano and vocal lines, letting the sounds build on top of each other until that final gasp. It turned into this wrenching shimmering section that sounds like the end of a poisonous relationship; dissolving, fragmenting, painful but also ultimately freeing.”
