The Wave Pictures have announced a new album and an accompanying UK tour.

'Brushes With Happiness' will arrive on June 22 and is the first of two albums that will be released by the London trio this year. According to the press release there were four steps to creating the new record:

  1. Guitarist and vocalist Dave Tattersall didn't compose any music prior to recording, just lyrics.
  2. Everything on the album is a first take.
  3. They recorded the songs "drunk and high, late at night so as to be as relaxed as possible."
  4. The tracks are predominantly in a minor key.

Speaking about it, Tattersall said:

​“Listening to the album feels like being in a ceremony. It takes you to that place. This is music that emanates from one group of people in one place in space and time. Listening to it is like being let in on a secret.”

Head below to check out new single Jim, along with the album's artwork and tracklist.

'Brushes With Happiness' tracklist:

​1. The Red Suitcase
2. Rise Up
3. Jim
4. Laces
5. The Little Window
6. Crow Jane
7. The Burnt Match
8. Brushes With Happiness
9. Volcano

Tue 20 Feb 2018
In any walk of life, successful people are the ones who know how to maximise their strengths while working on, or disguising, their weaknesses. It’s a philosophy the Gaslight Anthem’s Brian Fallon has adopted as his modus operandi to great effect in recent years, including on his impressively diverse second solo album, ‘Sleepwalkers’.
Rolo Tomassi - Time Will Die And Love Will Bury It (Album Review)
Tue 06 Mar 2018
Rolo Tomassi are weird. They’re a weird band. But you can forget bizarre little cartoons. Forget 8-bit silliness. Forget Myspace and rawr and quirky haircuts and all that nonsense. Rolo Tomassi are not anything like that. With their fifth full-length, ‘Time Will Die And Love Will Bury It’, they have cemented themselves as one of the UK’s best bands and contenders on the world stage.

Wed 14 Mar 2018
Illustration: Thomas Norton There are easier jobs than singing along with Craig Finn, particularly when he’s in this sort of mood. His arms are spread wide, proselytising like the old days. He shimmies and shakes. His guitar, never his closest friend, swings at his waist like an invitation to a party he’s only half into. His words pour out and are yelled back by everyone who can keep pace; anyone who hasn’t already screamed their voice to shreds. It’s good to see him back in a bar band, baby.

Gengahr - Where Wildness Grows (Album Review)
Wed 14 Mar 2018
Gengahr’s sophomore album, ‘Where Wildness Grows’, arrives three years after the London indie-rockers’ refreshing debut, ‘A Dream Outside’, and following several false starts. Early recordings were rejected in favour of starting over, with extensive touring and the ensuing tiredness taking a toll as they looked to capitalise on an excellent opening move. So, was the wait worthwhile?
