Paul Smith and Peter Brewis are Frozen by Sight

Frozen by Sight is the new album from Paul Smith (Maximo Park) and Peter Brewis (Field Music). Drawing inspiration from disparate musical and poetic sources the two Mercury Prize nominees have come together in a playful departure from their respective bands, with Peter Brewis' chamber-band arrangements built up around text from Paul Smith's travel writing, creating a restrained yet richly descriptive song suite. Here's a little taste:

Head to www.frozenbysight.co.uk to pre-order Frozen by Sight on gatefold 180 gsm LP, CD or download and you’ll receive an exclusive limited edition stitched lyric book, the first 100 of which will be signed by Paul Smith. In addition, you’ll receive an instant download of Trevone, Mount Wellington Rises and Barcelona (At Eye Level) from the album to your inbox to whet your appetite.
