The Wave Pictures - new single "Eskimo Kiss" + UK tour dates [Watch Video]

The Wave Pictures

The Wave Pictures release new single "Eskimo Kiss" via Moshi Moshi on February 18, 2012

The Wave Pictures are back in 2012 with the debut single from their forthcoming album Long Black Cars.

Eskimo Kiss is drummer Jonny 'Huddersfield' Helm's first foray into lead vocals on a Wave Pictures album.

With lyrics by long-time collaborator Stanley Brinks - and penned in the canteen on the 2nd floor of NYC's Harlem Hospital - it's a song Dave Tattersall describes as "very enigmatic, dark and mysterious yet still peppered with details of the everyday".

The 'everyday' is a topic close to the Wave Pictures collective hearts - "we find the mundane magical: the everyday amazes me. What could be more extraordinary and more ordinary than the sunrise?"

Long Black Cars was recorded over 4 days in New York City in the Bushwick area of Brooklyn, and features many of the band's friends including Turner Cody and The WoWz.
