ALIENS - Turned to Flame
Aliens were created as a music/film collective by film maker, songwriter & singer, Tim May and Iain Harvie, best known as the guitarist for Del Amitri. They were soon joined by Helen Turner from Paul Weller & Style Council on keys, Martyn Barker from Shriekback on drums and The Bible’s Leroy Lendor on bass. Iain has now confined his Aliens duties to mixing and producing while Tim and the band play live.
‘Turned to Flame’ was written by Tim and Helen and produced by Neill MacColl (from David Gray, David Gilmour, Kathryn Williams and The Bible). The song imagines what it feels like to have your inner world blown apart as everything outside descends into chaos. Driven by Helen’s emotive piano, it marks a departure from the band’s guitar-led Rock and Roll.
