A 3 track digital single with ‘Keep It Together’ as the main track, plus ‘Midnight With The Stars And You’ and ‘I Don’t Need Love’.

The album, DAMGOOD442 will be out in June and it’s gonna be on LP and CD and as ever Piney’s pulled together a stellar band, with members of Gaz Coombes and Emiliana Torrini’s touring band jumping in on guitar, bass and drums alongside The Smith Brothers & regular collaborator Garo Nahoulakian takes a seat in the producer’s chair. Andy Ramsay of Stereolab makes an appearance on drums; the bulk of the album was recorded in his South London studio. The rest was whipped-up in Piney’s little Hackney Studio, small and perfectly formed like a musical toy box, chock-full of space echo, marimba, omnichord and pocket piano, which combine to create a euphoric indie-starshine. Think Yoshimi-era Flaming Lips alongside sparkling tableaux of Mercury Rev., the tunefulness of Grandaddy and riff-led counter-melodies like The Pixies. After a decade spent in the UK it feels like Piney’s finally made England hers by rediscovering America, re-imagined from London’s rainy streets, channelling her inner Jekyll and Mister Hyde, “because there’s two sides to everything, right?” These tunes beautifully stitch together English folk, American pop, mariachi moments, trail songs and baroque beats. Sometimes it’s like an alternative musical history of a storybook amusement park ride. And need we mention, it’s a wild ride you’re gonna love…
