Track Of The Day: Mike Hughes - '(That Girl Is...) Misery'

I think I first heard this on BBC 6Music a few weeks back, and have found it hard to get it out of my head ever since. This is the debut single from Mike Hughes, a singer-songwriter from South Yorkshire. Americana influences and somewhat Tarantino-like vibes are evident, as well as strong Morricone flavours and mariachi horns, while still remaining unmistakably British in melody, recalling Ray Davies and Noel Gallagher

Described as 'apocalyptic gospel blues' in the press release, the new track has already been picking up radio support from the likes of Steve Lamacq, Mark Radcliffe, Cerys Matthews and Dermot O'Leary. It's out next week (October 7)  and is available digitally HERE. Hughes has also just released a FREE new EP. 'Live at 2fly' was recorded in August with Dave Sanderson at 2fly Studios in Sheffield, and is available from his website HERE.
