Every weekday, DIY’s new music know-it-all Neu brings you one essential new release to get obsessed with. Today’s Neu Pick comes from The Death Of Pop.
Dorset quartet The Death Of Pop are returning next month with a new EP, and today’s Neu Pick comes in the form of its first taster, new single ‘700 Spas’.
The track is the first preview of ‘Heads West’, which comes out via the Bristol-based Leisure Records on 16th March.
A jangly, retro cut that barely scrapes the two-minute mark, ‘700 Spas’ is a sunny return that feels completely uninhibited.
“700 Spas is inspired by a spelling error that I saw a student at school make,” the band’s vocalist Angus James tells us over email.
“I started to consider how isolating it would be if you struggled with communication. The song is about knowing everyone around you is leaving you behind but being powerless to understand why or do anything about it.”
The band are set to play a headline show in London, on 28th April at Shacklewell Arms.
