As Wah Wah 45s celebrate 20 years of releasing music, they’re also very happy to announce the return of soulful outfit Hardkandy after an 11 year hiatus.
The brand new single “Brief Encounters” features the beautifully delivered vocals of newcomer Scarlett Fae.
Since the release of “Second To None” back in 2008, Hardkandy, AKA Tim Bidwell, has been busy as a producer working with the likes of Lucy Rose, Matthew And The Atlas, Jack Watts, Kate Walsh and many more at his Brighton based Clockwork Owl Studio. However, inspired by the continued popularity of this now classic album, especially on streaming platforms, Tim thought it was time to dust off his Hardkandy shoes and gather a squad of musicians to work on some new material.
Scarlett Fae is an uber talented young singer who Tim met through a vocal session. They struck up a fruitful working relationship and the result is this very catchy, and of course very soulful piece of music, co-written by Chris Boot and Ben Daniel.
