RELEASE NEW SINGLE TODAY:
RELEASED 18 FEBRUARY 2022, VIA PAPERCUP MUSIC
The latest single to emerge from their upcoming ‘Stoned Weekend’ project, it’s a track that finds the Couple’s holiday-for-the-head taking a supernatural sideroad.
Described by the duo as “a song about a couple of teenage bloodsuckers and their tumultuous friendship”, thankfully it’s more of a bitter and twisted yarn from the back-of-beyond, than ‘Twilight’-style fiction for the teen-vampire trash pile.
Lurching into earshot on a wave of knotty guitar lines, spindly mandolins, rickety solos and feedback obfuscated vocals; “Linda’s Tripp” sounds like the glorious Neil Young / Dinosaur Jr / R.E.M hook-up that never happened.
As easy-going in its euphoria, as it is mixed-up in its melancholy; “Linda’s Tripp” captures the roller coaster of adolescence and outsiderdom with an abject sense of chaos. It’s title is sure to raise a grin among US history hacks too…
“It’s name is an homage to one of the most notably tumultuous female friendships of all time” hints Miles Robinson. “It was inspired by a feeling more than music but I guess it ended up being a Dinosaur Jr rip.”
“Linda’s Tripp” follows the seasonal slacker-rock anthem “Our December” and the laid-back lushness of lead single “Lemon Trees”. All three will feature on the band’s fast approaching debut album ‘Stoned Weekend’ (released digitally on 18th February, via PaperCup Music).
