Today, Sherene's Closet return from almost two decades of dormancy with an earnest new single 'Catch You'.
Some listeners might remember Sherene's Closet from their hit 1999 release Kept Secrets, which spawned songs like 'It's A Pity' and 'French Kissing' and scored them an interview by Paul Zach on Zach's Trax and a nomination for best local act on the 2001 Perfect 10 Music Awards.
Now the band is back, with a refreshed lineup: vocalist and songwriter Gerald Stahlmann is the only remaining member of the original trio, while bassist Wann Hussain (Force Vomit), drummer Martin Kong (Caracal) and lead guitarist Tan Shung Sin (Great Spy Experiment) fill out the band.
This new single 'Catch You', off a forthcoming EP aptly titled Rebirth, was in fact written in the 90s, but never recorded. The new EP was recorded at The Motor Museum, the Liverpool recording studio that has hosted the likes of Oasis, Arctic Monkeys and others. Rebirth was produced by Al Grooves and Leonard Soosay, who also recorded the band's first demo and album many years ago.
Sherene's Closet will be playing at Baybeats and at benefit show Rock For Noah's Ark. In the meantime, check out 'Catch You' for a heart-on-sleeve dose of grounded rock romanticism ("I'm not the kinda guy / Who would send you flowers every day / Maybe once or twice / When the weather looks nice").
