Mice Parade - digital single ‘Mallo Cup / In Between Times’ pre-order from UK & Europe now
FatCat are pleased to announce that Mice Parade‘s new digital single, the two-tracker In Between Times/Mallo Cup is available for pre-order now in the UK and Europe from the FatCat webstore
This double A single – Mallo Cup (a Lemonheads cover) and In Between Times – is the first single to be released from What It Means To Be Left-Handed, the stunning new full-length from Mice Parade, released worldwide on the 13th of September this year.
Band leader Adam Pierces decision to cover Evan Dandos Mallo Cup is partly intended to satisfy his formative school-age interest in 80s and 90s indie (Pierce at one time would perform Lemonheads covers in pre-Mice Parade bands) and partly as an opportuntiy for Pierce to rewrite the track as he would have liked for it to have sounded more energy, more substance in production and performance.
In Between Times is more recognisable Mice Parade fare, though clearly an evident progression from previous records. Coloured by splashes of West African Highlife, Flamenco and Brazillian Jazz, it is flickering, enveloping and soaring. Guest vocalist Caroline Lufkins range is chill-inducing, bracing a blissful giddy-paced vocal duet with Pierce before the song breaks into a pseudo-Afro, percussive middle eight that showcases the stunning rhythmic interplay between Pierce and drummer Doug Scharin.
The live band is a force to be reckoned with; they will be taking their 2 drumkits and 7 people out on the road worldwide this autumn and winter, hitting the UK with Silje Nes and Europe with Laetitia Sadier (Stereolab) supporting in October.
