The great Manchester art-poppers Dutch Uncles are coming back early next year with a new album called Big Balloon. And today, they’ve shared its title track, a jittery jam built around an equally jittery bassline. “The song has a simple message: to be content with who you are,” says vocalist and lyricist Duncan Wallis. “The song helped steer the direction of the songs written afterwards which became the album Big Balloon,” adds composer and bassist Robin Richards. “It reminded us of the potency of the electric guitar, and brought them back as focal instruments on the record.” Listen below.
Big Balloon is out 2/17 on Memphis Industries.
