Back with a follow up to their 2020 debut ‘Shonk’, Wicketkeeper have revealed plans for their sophomore album, ‘Zambroni’, to be released on 22nd September via Umpire Records. The new record sees the multi-instrumentalist trio embrace different methods of writing and recording (out of both creativity and necessity), resulting in a fuller, more developed sound.

To mark the occasion, the band have also shared the new album’s first single, ‘Alarm Clock Radio’. Of the track, Simon comments: “When Ryan sent through the demo, I dropped everything and assembled my makeshift recording set-up. I don’t normally write straight-down-the-line love songs, I like to lightly sprinkle earnest, heartfelt compliments between casual insults or morbid nonchalance”.

Not one to pick an obvious target for such sentiments, though, he goes on to explain that “I wrote the first two lines and thought ‘hold on, this could be about an alarm clock rather than a person’ and ten minutes later it was finished and I was laughing to myself about how funny I am. ‘Modest, basic, robust design, with 24 hour army time’ is probably my favourite lyric I’ve written”.

Check out the ‘Zambroni’ tracklist:

1. Backwards Again
