Kula Shaker / Double Dates At Camden’s Electric Ballroom This Week

Kula Shaker, who have just kicked off their Spring UK Tour, have released Peace Wheel, a new double A-side single featuring the new tracks Rational Man and Bringing It Back Home (Radha Ramana Hari Bol!). With the Friday show at Camdens Electric Ballroom sold out, the band have been able to add a second show the following night.

“Our approach to the double A-side is like two sides of the human brain,” Alonza Bevan said. “Rational Man is about an everyday guy who actually has a brain struggling to find some reasonable sanity in the world. Then Bringing it Back Home is about the search for a spiritual solution.” 

The two “peace-themed” songs were recorded at London’s legendary RAK studios, where Kula Shaker recorded much of their multi-platinum-selling debut album K. Both tracks were mixed by Ash Howes, who also mixed the whole of their recent album Natural Magick.

“Bringing It Back Home also features the famous Indian kirtan chant, Radha Ramana, Hari Bol,” Crispian Mills said, “so it’s fitting and auspicious that it was recorded in the same room we recorded Govinda all those years ago.”

Natural Magick topped the Independent Album Charts and followed a number of cracking live shows from the reunited K lineup. “It’s been almost 25 years since the release of Peasants, Pigs & Astronauts,” MetalTalk said in our review. “The lineup is back. They are doing more live shows, and this is where they gleam. Natural Magick is a tantalising, welcome and long overdue return. Finally, some things are right in the world again.”

Peace Wheel is available as an exclusive double A-side Ltd edition 7-inch single and digitally from kulashaker.tmstor.es. Tour tickets are available from here.
