Listen: Jonquil Return With New Album ‘Point of Go’

November 29, 2011 by  

Following the departure of half of the band a year ago, who went on to form Trophy Wife, and singer Hugo’s recent solo project Chad Valley, the remaining members of Jonquil, including Hugo plus one new member, have announced they are to release a third album.

The album, entitled ‘Point of Go’, was recorded over a six-week period at the farmhouse studio of Andrew Halford ? guitarist with Trophy Wife?s live band.

Hugo elaborates: ?We thought, well, let’s stop and go back to how we used to work – recording in my bedroom and being a bit more abstract about it. Rather than all of us being in a room saying ?Let’s write a song?, we’d just get some interesting textures and drumbeats and build from there.?

The first track to be taken from the record, It’s My Part, can be streamed below:
