Refugee - Hookstick ( © Lane and Lane 2016 )

Great pop tune with funk/gospel based track. Vocals by Kes C and Jonny Welburn provide massive impact on this powerful track.

Real - Hookstick (© Lane and Lane 2016)

Pop reggae ballad. This was a track created in two halves and stitched together by a reggae skank. Gorgeous upbeat chorus, for some people it's the track of the album.

Lover - Hookstick
(© Lane and Lane)

Disco comes to town. The longest track to write of them all, written in a car going backwards and forwards to a hospital and stopping on and off to scribble down key changes or lyrics. With that fabulous middle 8 from up North. Remember those talkover smoochy sections, ladies....

Serious - Hookstick (© Lane and Lane)

Favourite band thrash track. Cheeky poke back at Uptown Funk and probably the most complicated sounding sequence. Real seventies vibe about it, and it's about ...well, it's complicated. Depends on who you are.

The first "Love Dream" (Liebestraum) was written by Liszt for the piano. This track revisits the psychedelic love lyrics of seventies funk disco, an emotion-laden experience setting its own unique tone for this album.

Who You Are - Hookstick
(© Lane and Lane 2016)

Here's an answer to Justin Bieber's "Love Yourself". A bit less cold and angsty, and more from the heart about how it all works. Stunning vocal from Kes C and an amazing butterfly of a bassline from Rachael. Retro soul sound with a modern twist.

Discovery - Hookstick (© Kes C, Lane and Lane 2014)

Superb funky disco track by Kes C. Hot vocals to match.

Watch This Space - Hookstick (© Lane and Lane 2013)

Nothing not to like in this trad. upbeat pop disco track. Great ad lib section by Kes C and an unbelievable middle eight solo by Tom Stedman, mirroring the improv vocals. Just fun.

Sparkles - Hookstick (© Lane and Lane 2015)

Sassy funky version of "When Tomorrow Comes", turning a soft ballad into a suggestive Macy Gray -style funtrack. Elements of blues combined with soft pop and a standout bassline.

Twice as Nice - Hookstick (© Lane and Lane 2016)

Easy to love track retro-style track in concept, harking back to Motown, but always with that added pop twist. Cutting groove and feel from that funky bass.
