Beneath a skylight window, The Attic Movement flickered into life.
In the dusty converted loft of a terraced house, nestled amongst the famous green hills of Sheffield, songwriter, Matt Williams, set himself the challenge of writing a song a day for a month. The inspiration ebbed and flowed like the changeable spring weather, but finally after 30 days he emerged with a book of hopeful sketches – the beginnings of something new.
Teaming up with Grammy Award winning engineer/producer, Chris Wilkinson, the pair set about transforming the scratchy lo-fi demo recordings, captured in the early days of writing, into fully formed productions. After assembling a band of experienced musicians they began laying the foundations for the first tracks at Tesla studios, with overdubs being recorded at Fox Den Studios over the following months.
The first of these recordings to be released is the anthemic single "Leave The Car" - a song that opens with tender americana inflections and gradually builds to soaring, alt-rock choruses. Adhering to a somewhat fluid line-up, the track also features a dynamic vocal performance from Dutch singer LIO.
