Last year, Manchester's Everything Everything released the classy and catchy single "MY KZ, UR BF", a song that pays perfect homage to the pop-scene of the 80s without any hint of parody or ridiculous haircuts. This year, the same band (with a line-up alteration) released the equally infuriatingly catchy "Schoolin'", with it's incessant 'whistle'. Now, once again, EE are having another crack at "MY KZ" with a new video, which you can watch right here, a debut album called "Man Alive" and a tour to top it all off.
Their dates start in Newcastle on 28th September and continue through Glasgow, London before ending up in their home-town on 12th October. The full roster is below and tickets go on sale at 9am this Friday (13th August), mostly priced under £10 (give or take for fees).
The new album is officially launched at the Camden Barfly on 2nd September, although the official release date is 30th August. The 12-song set includes both of the singles plus tracks such as "Photoshop Handsome" (another previous single) and "Qwerty Finger". It has already been hailed by excitable reviewers as 'an album of the year'.
