All We Are are the Liverpool-based trio that includes Richard ‘O Flynn (drums, vocals), Guro Gikling (bass, vocals) and Luis Santos (guitar, vocals). Three years after Sunny Hills, they announced the release of a new album. Providence is out on August 14th via Double Six and Domino. “Not Your Man” is a new excerpt. Watch the official video below.
Recorded in Liverpool in a retired school building (O’Flynn is a property guardian) that is integral to the group; a place that gives them both space and time to go at their own pace, the album is a cascade of colour and hooks, funky basslines and electric rhythms. Where its predecessor had been clouded by anxieties, manifesting in drone-indebted guitars and a dark heaviness, Providence lands with a lighter touch aided by working with producer Dave McCracken. Their goal whilst writing was to use it to soothe your worries and make you move. Offering respite from the gloom, the album’s driving force is the power of music to heal, no matter what your beliefs or worries.
