Blue Bendy offer up new single ‘International’

Listen to the latest from the South London sextet.

Already having made a buzz with support slots for the likes of Squid, ​Drahla and Scalping, South London sextet Blue Bendy are back with jangly new single ‘International’.

“I was spending 26 hours a week commuting on overnight coaches from my girlfriend’s university house in East Fife to London for 1 shift a week on Borough Market,” vocalist Arthur Nolan explains of the song’s origins which document that time in his life. Recorded with Margo Broom at her studio in North London, and tracked live on tape, he adds, “The main core of the music came while trying to get cool sounds out of the Korg MS20, which was new to the band at the time. While the synth and guitar were noodling, Oscar put a big kick drum heavy beat behind the two, everything suddenly jumped together and we all at once thought: this needs to be written as a full song.”

An exciting glimpse at where they’re heading next, have a listen below.
