Old English, “We’ve Been Here Before”
Old English began as a solo project for Matt Henderson but this “accidental band” grew as Henderson “found himself missing the collaborative nature” that he was used to working with. Evolving into a collaboration with 15 other artists – the sound of the Old English will tug at your heartstrings and will remind you of The Stars and even Bran Van 3000.
“We’ve Been Here Before” is the first single off the band’s debut LP, Prose and Kahns, which has an early 2013 release date. You can hear Henderson’s excitement to share in his creation, the upbeat, pop-dance track is infectious and is expertly produced. Layers of beats, mellifluous backing vocals, dreamy synthesizers and horns are all intoxicating; perfectly capturing the story of past lovers rekindling an old flame.
