Piroshka continue to tease their debut LP with a new track, What's Next?

The song is the second to be shared by the band, which comprises of Miki Berenyi of Lush, Elastica’s Justin Welch, Moose’s KJ McKillop and Mick Conroy of Modern English. It follows the record's lead single, Everlastingly Yours, which emerged alongside details of 'Brickbat' last November.

Musically the track is built around a driving rhythm section and waves of synths, while lyrically it revolves around the flood of bad news we get on a daily basis. Vocalist, Berenyi said:

"What’s Next? started life as a guitar-and-drums demo from Justin that he’d called 'Protest' – the drums being inspired by the idea of a protest march. It’s one of the very first songs Piroshka worked on together. The lyrics are inspired by the shock and fallout regarding current political upheavals – how this finger-pointing and rage and blame are so damaging, how we need to get back some kind of solidarity if we possibly can because the divisions between us are playing into certain people’s hands. Funnily enough, the song was called Time’s Up when it was first recorded, but that title then got taken so we thought we’d better change it! It’s the only track on the album mixed by Alan Moulder – before we got picked up by Bella Union, we had an album’s worth of demos but we only had enough money to get one of them mixed!"

The band will release 'Brickbat' on February 15 via Bella Union, with a UK and European tour set to follow in the spring.
