** PUCKER UP! NATIONAL SERVICE SERVE UP ‘TIMID KISSES’ **
** SECOND SINGLE, CAMDEN ASSEMBLY SHOW SET UP FOR SEPTEMBER **

A thunderously regretful fierce panda one sheet

The Band: NATIONAL SERVICE

The Tunes: ‘TIMID KISSES’ / 'BROTHER BE GOOD'

The Format: DOWNLOAD SINGLE

The Label: fierce panda

The Release Date: SEPTEMBER 1ST 2017

The iTunes Link: https://itunes.apple.com/gb/album/timid-kisses-single/id1262402103?i=1241587687&app=itunes

The Truth: the strongly-monikered NATIONAL SERVICE are still very much a four piece outfit from North London. They consist of Fintan Campbell (vocals / guitar), Daniel Hipkin (bass / vocals), Iain Kelly (guitar / vocals) and Matthew Alston (drums). ‘Timid Kisses’ is their second single release, out digitally on fierce panda on September 1st. To celebrate they headline Camden Assembly on Friday September 8th.

Recorded by To Kill A King’s Ben Jackson, ‘Timid Kisses’ is an urgent, restless guitar track that couples National Service’s signature baritone vocal with hypnotic, unrelenting drums. While the tender lyric recalls the fond memory of a love lost, the claustrophobia in the music points towards a more forlorn nostalgia. The song ascends to its frantic climax, ruminating on what is now and what could have been.”

The ‘Timid Kisses’ single follows the excellent National Service debut ‘A Little More Time’, which came out in January as part of the fierce panda singles club. In true classic double AA-side form the flip of the ‘Timid Kisses’ single is ‘Brother Be Good’ which is a more genteel affair which builds up a gently cosmic head of steam. They will always be together. Together in electric dreams.

Come see National Service serve their live nation with this launch party here:
