Once again northern psych punks The Lovely Eggs return in a splatter of noise with their new single ‘Food’. Following hot on the trail of their awesome Too Pure release ‘Allergies’ (produced by Gruff Rhys) and winner of Steve Lamacq’s 6 Music Round Table.
Husband and Wife duo, Holly and David are back, bringing their brand of insanity into your homes, onto your radios and through your favourite venues.
Gearing up for yet more shows, more shouting, more laughing, probably some crying and definitely more drinking The Lovely Eggs have delivered their catchiest bout of dementia yet. ‘Food’ encapsulates everything that is exciting about punk rock, douses it in psychedelic, freak out refrains then tosses petrol on it and sets it on fire. An ode to masticating together, chowing down and gorging ourselves in the most disgraceful manner
‘Food’ is yet another reason The Lovely Eggs should be crawling around in everyone’s ears. From their distinctive fuzzed out guitar sound to the breakneck drums and Holly’s individual vocal delivery ‘Food’ is a joyous romp through the joys of sharing. Be it dreams, food or going slightly off the rails. Taking the mundane and twisting it on it’s head, finding something to shout about in the ordinary.
The Lovely Eggs are a rallying point for anyone that sees life for what it is. A mess. A wonderful, car crash of experiences, greeting each new chance with a cheeky grin, a sneer and a big fuck you to the pricks. With new single ‘Food’ The Lovely Eggs deliver yet more of the lunacy that makes them so compelling, fun and essential, tuck in.
‘In Watermelon Sugar’ the second track or (B-Side if you get the limited edition 7 inch) shows The Lovely Eggs at a more relaxed pace with a chime-type riff and gentle vocals mingling into a sunday morning type hangover cure. A 21st Century Velvets, that are in touch with their roots and their deep sense of colourful humour. They really can augment their current sound into all sorts of new areas in the future.
A new ‘FOOD’ video by art-cool director, Casey Raymond captures the pych pop-punk pop-art culture to perfection as they really are an audio-visual band and deserve their own TV Channel or Show at the very least, they really could be Morecombes’ answer to the Goodies meets the Monkies! Their astute use of art, slapstick, props, models, tints, colour, scale and choppy edits added with their psych-mod retro cool makes for a refreshingly upbeat digestible punkoid experience all around. Catch them live near to you soon!
‘Food’ b/w ‘In Watermelon Sugar’ is released on May 14th 2012 through Cherryade Records.
The Lovely Eggs hit the road in support of ‘Food’ this moth.
