Listen :: Passport to Stockholm - Shooting Stars
Words: Sam Geary
Passport to Stockholm return with a new sound, a new line-up and new single - 'Shooting Stars’, which came out on Friday.
Since the release of last summer's debut EP ‘All At Once’ the band have concentrated on touring heavily, building on the momentum as the more pastoral ‘Better Days’ saw them reach the top 100 on the CMJ chart and top 30 most viral US Spotify (top 10 UK).
Now down to a three-man line-up of Chris ‘Barny’ Barnard, Tom Piggott and Henri Grimes after cellist Mariona De Lamo's lay-off after a long stint in hospital, ‘Shooting Stars’ builds on the band's love of uplifting choruses, fused with electronica to turn it into a big, hooky pop anthem.
Currently on a 10-date UK tour supporting Canadian artist Ben Caplan, remaining live dates are:
14 Manchester - Deaf Institute
15 Newcastle - Cluny
16 Edinburgh - Electric Circus
17 Glasgow - King Tut’s
