Listening Post

These long summer nights can send you a bit mad – kinda like the dancing in audiobooks’ new video

Cutting loose in the Hot Salt Weather

It’s literally just over a year ago that audiobooks wrote ‘Hot Salt’. Almost to the day in fact. As the duo, Fine Art student Evangeline Ling and music producer David Wrench, explain in our recent interview feature the song came to them on the longest day of 2017. “We just wanted something we could dance to on summer solstice,” offered Wrench. “It happened by accident, we just said, ‘oh, we’ve written a pop song.'”

It’s a really good pop song, and now it’s one with a really good video. One where the twosome mostly dance in a field, but somehow make it infinitely more interesting than that sounds. To be honest, it’s not unlike audiobooks’ infectious live show which is a total, unbridled blast.

audiobooks released ‘Gothenburg EP’, they debut EP, back in April on Heavenly Recordings.

Support Loud And Quiet from £3 per month and we'll post you our next 9 magazines

As all of us are constantly reminded, it’s getting harder for independent publishers to stay in business, which applies to Loud And Quiet more now than ever, 14 years after we first started printing a magazine that we’ve always given away for free.

Having thought about the best way to support the costs of what we do (the printing and server fees, the podcast and video production costs etc.) we’d like to ask our readers who really enjoy what we do to subscribe to our next 9 issues over the next 12 months. The cheapest we can afford to do this for is a recurring payment of £3 per month for UK subscribers. If you really start to hate it you can cancel at any time. The same goes for European subscriptions (£6 per month) and the rest of the world (£8 per month).

It’s not just a donation – you’ll receive a physical copy of our magazine through your door, and some extra perks detailed on our subscribe page. Digital subscriptions are available worldwide for £15 per year. We hope you consider this a good deal and the best way to keep Loud And Quiet in your life without its content, independence or existence suffering.
