Switched On 05:29


The first single from Mark’s second solo album is a beautiful psychedelic reverie with echoes of Verve (before they added the The) or the criminally underrated Acetone, with its dusty, deserty feel.

It features vocals from former One Dove singer/songwriter Dot Allison, who says of the track: “I really wanted the chorus to feel immense and to form a melodic ‘sky’. So, I layered my vocals and messed about with reverb to create a spaciness to it, hopefully like rays of sun yet also a hint of a mist. I wanted it to infer intimacy and something physical and at the same time intangible.”

“I could never have predicted how Dot would elevate the song to such a special place,” says Mark. “I’m immensely proud of our collaboration.”

The edit of the track comes with an exclusive digital B-side called ‘Switched On’, which is actually a spaced-out, almost dubby reworking of the original, again featuring Dot on vocals.
