Grab a cup and meet me at the Water Machine. Glasgow’s preferred purveyors of weird and wonky art-punk return with the new single ‘Art Fair / Blisters’ on Fat Cat Records this December. Recorded with Ronan Fay at the illustrious Green Door Studios, and mixed and mastered by frequent collaborator Ross McGowan at Chime Studios, this double-A side marks a departure from previous release ‘Raw Liquid Power’.

‘Art Fair’ is a stomping tale of rejection and dejection, of self-employed artists desperate for a sale. Lyrically, it’s an unabashed first person demand for attention - “You see I made all this for you and I’m feeling so unloved”; musically, it’s a hybrid of angular 70s proto-punk and contemporary Australian post-punk, like Eddy Current Suppression Ring by way of Television.

Conversely, ‘Blisters’ is a sunny ode to sore feet and late nights, a sing-along number channelling The Pastels with its laissez-faire la la las. An infectious, wriggling earworm of a tune with an irresistible chorus - “I got blisters on my hands, I got blisters on my feet” - it builds to a frenzied, clownish cacophony that collapses in on itself with a final flourish, like the end of a magic trick. Ta-da!
