Unknown Territories is a Mancunian supergroup of sorts, what started out as an idea between Rikki Turner (Paris Angels) and Martin McLaren grew into a project with Seán Crossey, Esther Maylor (Heavy Salad), Tom Hingley (Inspiral Carpets), Lewis Jones and Callum Croston.
During the Summer of 2022, Rikki, Martin and Seán invited Esther along to record vocals on tracks the three had been working on, produced by Lewis and Callum at Spirit Studios in Manchester. The idea then grew and Tom ended up getting involved on a few tracks along with Seán appearing on a number of spoken word tracks.
‘Broken’ is the first single to be taken from the forthcoming album and it features Esther’s gorgeous lead vocals. Big beats and thumping bass is the order of the day here, this may be Mancunian born but these are Unknown Territories.
“Unknown Territories is the project I’ve been working on with some extremely talented friends and I’m proud to say we’re releasing the first single to be taken from the forthcoming album on November 17th. This has been a labour of love from all involved”. – Seán Crossey
