Mercurial new talent Marcus Reeves presents his debut single ‘Black Tears’, available as a download through iTunes from 5 November 2012.

 

A shimmering slice of soulful rock, the song showcases his trademark blend of lyrical depth and

melodic hooks, stirring harmonies and high drama. A teaser sample can be heard now on his

website, http://www.reevescorner.co.uk alongside Reeves’ signature song Mad Bad World,

which is also available as a free download to fans who sign up to his mailing list. Of his latest

creation, Marcus says:

 

“Black Tears evokes the aftermath of an intense relationship, while the ‘b-side’ Mad Bad World

is a gloomy jazz affair. Imagine Tom Waits, Brett Anderson and Nick Cave having a drinking

competition to the soundtrack from Twin Peaks. Both songs are taken from my forthcoming first

album, which is like a sonic threesome between Aladdin Sane, Hedwig and The Phantom Of The

Opera.“

 

Black Tears is a tantalising introduction to Reeves’ forthcoming debut album ‘Quicksilver – The

Masquerade Macabre’, which is set to establish him as an exciting new homegrown songwriting

and performing talent. Comprising 13 original songs, the songs have been compared to classics

by artists including Marc Almond, Boy George, Freddie Mercury, David Bowie and Jacques Brel.
