NEWS: The Wedding Present unveil new single ‘Broken Bow’

Cult British indie group The Wedding Present released their latest album Going, Going… in September via Scopitones.  It followed on from their critically acclaimed record Valentina and, at the time of its announcement, leader David Gedge said: “I’d already decided by then that I didn’t want to make the next release just ‘another album’ and so I came up with the idea of twenty ‘interconnected’ pieces of music.  Then, in the summer of 2014 I travelled across the USA with photographer Jessica McMillan and we made some atmospheric short films to accompany the tracks.  Since then it’s been a case of progressing through the music, trying all sorts of ideas, seeing how they work set against the visuals.”

The band have already shared the audio and video for ‘Bear,’ ‘Two Bridges,’ ‘Sprague,’ ‘Bear’ and ‘Rachel.’  But in advance of the album finally being released in America via HHBTM on 2nd December, the group are also releasing ‘Broken Bow’ as a single.  It’s a short but explosive rock number from the group, punctuated by Gedge’s typically incisive lyrics.  Listen below.

You can also listen to a playlist of some of the 20 tracks from Going, Going… together in a playlist below.
