Welcome back…

After a short break, we are back with a website as you are probably aware from looking with your eyes.

Listen to this with your ears!

Watch out for some more electronica releases soon.

The Agency are in the studio working on album 3 – It is a fine collection of songs that will stay with you (once we’ve caught them…)

The Agency – Recent News

After a lot of hard work and the usual tantrums and tiaras, The Agency… are about to release their new album ‘Of ghosts’. You can pre-order the album on bandcamp and there are very limited T-shirt/album bundles still available on Bandcamp. The T-shirts are limited edition and handmade from ethically sourced materials, so get yours while they are still available.

Before the release of the album there’ll be a gig at the Cluny 2 in Newcastle upon Tyne and this is proving to be a hot ticket. The band will be playing their new album in chronological order as well as a few old favourites. They are supported by Neil Armstrong (not the astronaut) and Low Lights Tavern.

The response to ‘Of Ghosts’ so far has been overwhelmingly positive. Check out what the press have been saying;

“Of Ghosts shows genuine talent at work. A North East band that could go places and are definite ones to watch out for.” Sophie Ward, Cuckoo Review.

“Of Ghosts’ is a genuine long-play record that sits alongside Leonard Cohen’s early work or mid-period Nick Cave, as an album to be taken seriously.” Alan Harrison, NoDepression.com, June 2014.

“‘Of Ghosts’ is a well-structured album that makes you want to hit repeat as soon as its over; continually surprising, it contains richly imagined storylines and plenty of technical brilliance.” Claire Dupree, NARC Magazine, July 2014.

“…the kind of undertow which sweeps you along; and the darker hued alt country tunes are right on the money. Quietly grandiose stuff.” Diane Peterson, The Crack Magazine, July 2014.

Hope to see you on the 25th of July, it’s going to be a great night!

The Agency… BBC Introducing

Thanks again for the ongoing support for ‘The Agency…’ from Nick Roberts on BBC Introducing.

New track ‘Fast’ was played on Saturday night amongst some great North East based artists including Lux Lisbon, Bridie Jackson and The Arbour (live in session), and Lulu James (to name but a few).

… It’s a song about political corruption and imagines the voices of the angels and the devils talking to the next bright young thing in the political world. They’re making a video for it too…

You can check out the show here.

Also, don’t forget that the new album ‘Of Ghosts’ is available to pre-order from Bandcamp. If you get it now there are two immediate downloads from the album, ‘Fast’ and ‘Child So Careless’. All for £7!

We are practically giving it away…;)

Love and Peace
