THE WAVE PICTURES ANNOUNCE THE RELEASE OF LONG BLACK CARS

OUT ON MOSHI MOSHI RECORDS APRIL 17TH 2012

UNVEIL MUSIC VIDEO FOR THE SINGLE “ESKIMO KISS”


TOURING THE UNITED STATES THIS SPRING WITH ALLO DARLIN’


The Wave Pictures and proudly announce the April 17th North American release of Long Black Cars, the British trio’s 12th full-length release, and fourth album for respected UK indie label Moshi Moshi Records. Long Black Cars was recorded over a 4 day span in Brooklyn, NY this past August, and draws inspiration from New York City, a favourite location for The Wave Pictures, who have often referenced the city in lyrics scattered across their many past releases. In support of their first album recorded on North American soil, The Wave Pictures are thrilled to be touring the United States extensively this coming April and May along side their countrymen Allo Darlin’ (Tour dates below). As a preview of the new material they’ve also just released the music video for the single “Eskimo Kiss”. Available to view below.



The Wave Pictures – Eskimo Kiss

The Wave Pictures feature frontman Dave Tattersall (Guitar, Vocals), Bassist Franic Rozycki, and Jonny ‘Huddersfield’ Helm on the drums. Throughout the course of their fourteen years together as a band, the trio from Wymeswold England have brought the meaning of prolific to new heights, releasing 12 albums, and 15 singles and EPs along side multiple compilation inclusions. They’ve also released and contributed to their own solo albums, side projects, collaborated, and have performed as backing band for the likes of the Mountain Goats, Daniel Johnston, and Darren Hayman among many others.

On Long Black Cars Tattersall’s vocals are familiarly rich, warm and soulful, with Rozycki’s fretwork on fine form for stand out track “Never Go Home Again.” Accompanied by an unusually mournful arrangement that perfectly reverberates the song’s narrative about a couple on the run, the result is pure poetry through an almost elegiac solemnity. Elsewhere, “Eskimo Kiss” features drummer Jonny ‘Huddersfield’ Helm’s first recorded vocal on a Wave Pictures album. “This song is very New York to me…a very enigmatic, dark and mysterious lyric, but still peppered with details of the everyday.” says Dave Tattersall. “The point is not that it is interesting to sing about the mundane rather than the magical,” he explains, “but that we find the mundane magical: the everyday amazes me.”
