Check out their new single 'I Could Hear The Telephone (3 Floors Above Me)'.
Leicestershire trio The Wave Pictures are back with another cracking album entitled 'Great Big Flamingo Burning Moon' out later this month via Moshi Moshi, alongside new single 'I Could Hear The Telephone (3 Floors Above Me)'.
The Wave Pictures unveil their 2015 album
The Wave Pictures; who are Jonny Helm, Dave Tattersall and Franic Rozycki; have unveiled a brand new video for the track, which features the band enjoying several cups of tea while going about their business, signing autographs and performing shows. Simply enough, Tattersall explained, 'The Wave Pictures love a nice cup of tea before they rock out on stage' and added, 'The video shows what life on the road is like for one of today's leading popular beat combos. No cats were harmed in the making of this video.'
With the forthcoming album being a collaboration with magnificently moustachioed punk artist BILLY CHILDISH, it seems The Wave Pictures were intent on bringing as many people as possible to the board, with 'I Could Hear The Telephone' also featuring vocals from Juju Claudius. 'Billy, often against the judgement of everyone else in the room, took the time to work out backing vocal parts for Juju, which brought another dimension to the songs. It's hard to imagine this song without Juju's vocal line on it', Tattersall recalled.
As for working with Childish himself, Tattersall confessed he 'was a joy to work with and we love the record. It was the most fun we've ever had making a record and to us it's the most exciting sounding thing we've ever done.' It is, indeed, an exciting prospect; equally as exciting as their sold-out 100 Club gig in London later this month and their upcoming stint at 6Music's festival.
Single 'I Could Hear The Telephone (3 Floors Above Me)' is out February 9th 2015, with the album, 'Great Big Flamingo Burning', to follow on February 16th.
