DUTCH UNCLES ANNOUNCE NEW ALBUM O SHUDDER
STREAM LEAD SINGLE ‘IN N OUT’ NOW
ALBUM RELEASED 23RD FEBRUARY 2015 ON MEMPHIS INDUSTRIES
BIGGEST HEADLINE SHOWS TO DATE CONFIRMED FOR MANCHESTER AND LONDON
“Manchester indie group return with a funk pop track which describes the primal urges of mankind with an oddly matter of fact approach” – The Guardian
Manchester five piece Dutch Uncles return with new album O Shudder, set to be released on Memphis Industries on 23rd February 2015. It will be followed by their biggest headline shows to date at the Ritz, Manchester on 27th March and Koko, London on 10th April.
O Shudder was recorded in Wales and Salford with long term collaborator Brendan Williams and features a cameo from Liverpool three piece Stealing Sheep. Without loosing any of their esoteric tendencies, O Shudder is easily Dutch Uncles’ most accessible album yet, with the band finally having alchemised their idiosyncrasies into art-pop perfection. Lead singer Duncan Wallis describes the themes of the record as being “more personal and direct than before with reflections on pregnancy, terrorism, school discos, divorce, health scares, sexual dysfunction and job-seeking”.
The long player will be introduced by the single ‘In n Out’. Futuristic synth sweeps, precise percussion, explosive snares and vivid fretless-bass lines propel the groove, whilst singer Wallis sketches this “grammatically poor approach to breaking down the ‘friend zone’”.
‘In n Out’ can be streamed now via www.dutchuncles.co.uk where it is also available to download instantly with every album pre-order. Tickets for the two UK shows are available now exclusively via www.dutchuncles.co.uk prior to going on general sale at 9am on Friday 24th October.
