Fine Soft Day are a progressive rock influenced band from Manchester, having emerged from folk-rock roots. Originally formed in 1996, the band were regular performers across the folk rock scene, mainly in the North West of England, but gigging nationwide. Their live sets featured a mixture of traditional material interspersed with their self penned songs. An independently published CD, Harmless and Blue, was released in 1997.
Families and careers forced the music to take a back seat over the following years. In the summer of 2018, the band reformed with the intention of trying out some new material and to record some of the older songs which had never been committed to the studio.
Over the following 12 months, the band’s new album, You Are Here, was written, arranged, recorded and mixed by the band themselves.
The new album incorporates strong influences of progressive rock, containing elements of early Genesis, Yes and Pink Floyd to name a few.
The band’s original folk roots were now replaced by soaring guitars, sweeping keyboards, strident bass lines and rich, complex vocal arrangements.
You Are Here is a concept album, unashamedly. Built around a concept of hope and humanity stretching across two points in history but connected by a single point on the earth – the weaving together of time and space.
The album features lyrical and musical motifs that recur throughout the material, in different guises, leading to the culmination of the 14 minute epic finale, Roll Up The World (Part 2).
The band wanted the album to allow listeners to follow on a journey, in a similar way to classic albums such as Dark Side Of The Moon and Close To The Edge had done before.
But alongside the progressive influences, there are elements of country rock, lending a flavour of R.E.M and Neil Young amongst others.
The band are hugely proud of the album, which will be released on digital platforms worldwide on 1st July 2019.
