AN alternative indie band formed at the University of Hertfordshire in Hatfield release their first single from their new album later this month.

Green Eyed Boy by Cardinal Jack will be released through Infuse on Monday, September 26.

It’s taken from the London/Hertfordshire trio’s debut album We Shall Start The Dance.

Paul Eaton, Tom Williamson and Mark Kempson formed Cardinal Jack while studying at the Hatfield-based university.

Originally in rival bands, the group was born at a post-night out jam with the three swapping instruments and trading ideas until they came up with their first song Day & Night.

The trio developed their sound over the next two years, their shared musical influences being the likes of The Smiths, The Mars Volta, The Beatles and The Police.

Infuse is a division of UHRecordings, a record label designed to ‘infuse’ and introduce students into the music industry through hands-on work with professionals alongside their academic studies.

It also offers a fantastic opportunity for students from colleges or universities across the country to be signed to the university’s record label.

Through UHRecordings, undergraduates from existing courses, as well as the new music entertainment and industry management courses, gain invaluable first-hand experience in the recording process.
