Track Of The Day: Saint Agnes - 'Old Bone Rattle'

Saint Agnes are a duo made up of Jon Tufnell (from The Lost Souls Club) and Lola Colt’s Kitty Austen. Apparently they "met at a gig whilst playing in their respective bands and quickly bonded over their mutual love of Nick Cave and Jack White. In Kitty’s East London flat they experimented with ghostly guitar reverb, swirling Hammond organ and dirty blues harmonica, the result is brooding psycha-western no-nonsense rock n’ roll at its best."

If the superb 'Old Bone Rattle' is anything to go by, that's a correct statement. Dishing out some raw, soul shaking rock n roll to begin with and eventually slipping down a moody Western flavoured psychedelic passage and emerging with epic guitars, it is quite simply brilliant. It's released as a single next week on June 10th, and comes backed with a cover of The Doors classic 'Roadhouse Blues'. They have three London gigs lined up, including the single launch on June 10th at The Sebright Arms...
