Gently Tender have shared a brand new track titled ‘Some Hard Advice’.
The band - which features three ex-Palma Violets and The Big Moon’s Celia Archer - follow up last year’s songs ‘2 Chords Good’ and ‘Avez-Vous Déjà’ with a track inspired by the mysterious false missile alert which happened in Hawaii last year.
Speaking about the track, the band’s Sam Fryer said: “I was reading the news last year and a story caught my attention of how the island of Hawaii went into crisis and panic when everyone received an accidental text message to say that a missile was heading in their direction and they should take cover. The song is about that moment of realisation - the prospect of dying without your loved ones.”
The band have also announced details of a London headline show, set to take place in March. They’ll play at Oslo on 6th March - tickets are on sale now - before playing at a handful of festivals in the following months.
