After six successful albums with Supergrass (including the #1 debut ‘I Should Coco’), Gaz Coombes will release his debut solo album ‘Gaz Coombes Presents… Here Come The Bombs’ on May 21st through Hot Fruit Recordings and EMI Label Services.
Produced alongside Sam Williams, with whom Coombes first worked with on ‘I Should Coco’, ‘Here Come The Bombs’ represents a continuation of his day-to-day life in music. Recorded at Coombes’s home studio and at Williams’s Temple Studio, both in Oxford, the album explores the unexpected whilst maintaining the famous love of melody that marked some of Supergrass’s finest moments.
“In a band, when you get a group of people who are walking the same path, it can be the most beautiful thing,” explains Coombes. “But with this I felt it was really focused on just what I wanted to get across, and on my inspirations – they were all my things that I’m into, whether it’s film, film soundtrack, or past artists that we didn’t really look at much in Supergrass. That was all really exciting. This is a completely blank page in a blank book, ready to be written on.”
