Leeds lad Rupert Stroud is giving away the lead track of his new album Chasing The Night all of this week to celebrate its release. The album offers impressive, beat driven arrangements that are dynamic, inventive and at times sweetly intimate. The lyrics on this semi autobiographical record are emotive and thought provoking with vocals that have been compared to Richard Ashcroft and Jim Morrison. Chasing The Night is a fine collection of songs which puts Stroud firmly in the emerging talent pool.
