They’re sharing new track ‘The Art Of Advertising’ too.

Following the release of their album ‘Broken Equipment’ earlier this year, Bodega have announced an expanded version ‘Xtra Equipment’.

Sharing new track ‘The Art Of Advertising’ alongside the news, Bodega’s Ben Hozie says, “Even when in the mode of social critique, I personally tend to think of my songwriting as more literary than analytic but here, the ‘The Art of Advertising’ and ‘Art and Advertising’ diptych functions as a sort of pop rock treatise on the subtle but crucial distinction between art and advertising (’Art creates cosmos’ whereas advertising ‘surface(s) status quo’).”

Check it out below.
