New Music – The Breeders – Wait in the Car
This will be the first album from the Breeders since Mountain Battles in 2008? That is a seriously long time. Kim Deal had some impressive solo work in the last few years but it went largely ignored for some reason. Hopefully this new album will find lots of ears. Listen to Wait in the Car below.
The Breeders play live in Dublin – Vicar Street – 16 October 2017
Ahead of their upcoming tour dates in Dublin, Europe and North America, The Breeders announce their return to 4AD with the infectious new track, ‘Wait in the Car’. The single is the first music to be released by the classic line-up behind the iconic album, Last Splash.
‘Wait in the Car’ marks the welcome reunion of band members Kim and Kelley Deal, Josephine Wiggs and Jim Macpherson. The quartet returned to the stage in 2013 to celebrate the 20th anniversary of their platinum-selling record Last Splash and have since been spending time together in the studio working on new material. The two-minute ‘Wait In The Car’ offers an enticing preview to a band who are still as vital and relevant as ever.
The artwork and visuals for ‘Wait in the Car’ come from Chris Bigg (formerly of the v23 team who worked on the band’s previous 4AD releases) and Martin Andersen, with the video piecing together 800 still images.
“It all started with a brick,” the pair say. “We both liked the idea of using something iconic yet quite banal. An old brick has a story and it’s a beautiful raw object. We started collecting more and more (some intact, some broken) and realised how different they all appear, each one having its own identity.”
