Tyneside trio, Sapien Trace, begin 2020 with the release of their new single, More Than I Can Give, on February 21, with a launch show at Newcastle’s Beyond Vinyl.

Formed in early 2018, Sapien Trace, which consists of Mark Dickinson (vocals), Alex Brand (guitar/bass) and Dan Baldwin (drums), have slowly built up a profile which saw NE Volume describe them as: “Imagine Rammstein and The Prodigy meet at a party in space with Pendulum driving,” or they being: “sci-fi rock at its finest,” according to The Crack.

Recorded at Blast Studios, Newcastle, in mid-January, vocalist Mark Dickinson said: “The track is about unrequited love.”

“It kind of shows how you try to rebuff that in a nicer way but they don’t get the message and it’s an idea that evolved from a few people that I know having experienced these types of situation and over the years.

“Going into Blast Studios, it was such an easy day as well. One which went quite quickly.

“We all had a good laugh and had some rather bizarre conversations, but created something which we all wanted – we even found out that our drummer, Dan, is something of a pool shark!”

Expect “a mashup of deep house and synthwave pop,” Sapien Trace have their single launch party at Beyond Vinyl, Westgate Road, Newcastle, on February 21, check the event page via https://www.facebook.com/events/1886579848152288/
