Martin Carr (former songwriter and guitarist for The Boo Radleys) has shared a video for his new single, “Flames.” The release coincides with Carr’s announcement of a Bandcamp subscription service, where fans will be given access to demos, exclusive livestream performances, a regularly released magazine titled New Shapes, and vinyl records. Watch the “Flames” video below.

Carr elaborates on the new song in a press release: “I wrote it on the guitar, it’s very simple, then I started throwing sounds at it. I love to make collages, and my music production method is identical. I move stuff around; I cut and bend and turn. I’m not after any particular sound or style, I try to be disciplined in the studio, but I wouldn’t want anything to dampen the thrill of inspiration that moves so fast, you can’t catch it all.”

Regarding the song’s lyrics, he adds: “I’m a terrible communicator. I’m self-absorbed and hardly have time for anything that lies beyond the front door.”

The Boo Radleys recently announced their reunion and subsequent release of an upcoming album.
