Earlier in the year we reported some good news for vinyl junkies and independent artists alike; a brand new vinyl production plant, Press On Vinyl, have set up shop in Middlesbrough and they’re committed to working with small-run releases and grassroots artists and labels.

To further support their investment in the region, their very first pressing will be the debut EP from Teesside indie pop band Komparrison, You Say She’s Satisfied is due for release in the first quarter of 2022. To celebrate the news, the band have digitally released a stripped-back version of their single Dancing With Demons, reimagined as a ballad and set to a cinematic arrangement of piano and strings, with Elise Harrison and Kaitlyn Kempen’s gorgeous harmonies at the forefront of the track. The announcement is a real shot in the arm for the Teesside quintet, whose stunning songwriting and engaging sound has seen them rightfully take their place among the region’s most treasured artists, it’s undeniable that 2022 will be a year to remember for the band.

Press On Vinyl’s co-founder Danny Lowe commented: We’ve watched this band evolve, grow and create music that makes our hearts sing, feet move and arms go goosebumpy. We started Press On to support independent music and the incredible scene we have here in the North East, so we’re so proud to have Komparrison as the first off the press because it shows exactly what we can do. There’s loads more to come. Onwards!”
