Has it really been three years since Jape released Ritual?
Jape (aka Richie Egan) returned with new material last week, releasing a double-A side single ‘Hands of Fire’/’Lying on a Deathbed’. They are the first two songs to be released from the forthcoming album Ocean of Frequency, out in September.
The synth-charged Hands Of Fire has already delighted fans and dancefloors alike during the last FMC tour and elsewhere over the winter. Meanwhile ‘Lying on a Deathbed’ is a tentative, touching personal tale in which he is ably assisted by Conor O’Brien of Villagers.
If this is what we can expect from the fourth album we’re in for another wonderous treat. Simply wonderful!
