Much-loved indiegoth dreamboats DESPERATE JOURNALIST return to the thoroughly frayed musical fray with a brand new (and suitably autumnal) single called ‘Cedars’ on November 2 nd . Propelled along by Rob Hardy’s startlingly lush guitar and empowered by a frankly cracking chorus from singer Jo Bevan ‘Cedars’ sees the quartet further hone their sensitive-yet-crushing alt.rock sound
relishing the old school DIY dynamics but never afraid to magic up a shiny modern melody or three
and then always willing to cast a shadow over that sheen.

“’Cedars’ is about the pervasive anxiety of the romantic that nothing will ever be enough
” confides Jo. “Small everyday moments that feel overwhelmingly beautiful in your life
when overanalysed
can be twisted into concern that perhaps that is all there is – that you’re never going to touch the stars. Or that your hope is false and you’ll never reach the indefinable glory and security you’re beating yourself up for not achieving. Maybe the bittersweetness of the little movie you live in is glorious though
and maybe you have arrived. Best worry about it some more…”

Last seen in London Town selling out Oslo in the spring
over the past five years Desperate Journalist (completed by drummer Caz Hellbent and bassplayer Simon Drowner) have dazzled and delighted all and sundry with two excellent albums
two effervescent EPs and a raft of riotously enervating live shows from The Scala to Stuttgart and back again. ‘Cedars’ is the first track to be taken from their forthcoming third album
‘In Search Of The Miraculous’
which is released on February 22nd 2019
and to celebrate the band support Marion at Islington Academy O2 on November 24th.
