Jack Adaptor release a summer smash single that channels Chicago House legend Frankie Knuckles producing Prefab Sprout with prime time New Order vibe into a glorious blast of sad sunshine. A yearning track with chiming guitars with a massive chorus like The Teardrop Explodes meeting OMD (the track was recorded in Paul Humphries' Studio). The song explores the sadness of being isolated from friends and sympathetic souls on the ever-distanced continent across the Channel.


Saturday Bride

We live by the lake wrapped up in cellophane
A delicate fake or romantic ideal
Look at the town shining across the lake
We battle for love just to see how it feels

I threw a stone on my own heart
I threw a stone onto my own heart

We live on the lake, remnants of memory
It’s not easy to break such a heartless divide
And those in the town love us as enemies
Keeping us close as a Saturday bride

I threw a stone on my own heart
I threw a stone onto my own heart
I threw a stone on my own heart
I threw a stone onto my own heart
