Summer, eh? The season where anything can happen – but probably doesn’t – is here, which is nice. If flowers, going to the beach and pictures of people in muddy fields aren’t enough to get you excited for July, maybe the new Martha record will help.
While you’ve still got a few days to wait for ‘Blisters in the Pit of My Heart‘ (four if our maths is correct), you can check out their new video for ‘Ice Cream and Suncreen‘ below.
“It’s song about getting it bad and getting it wrong. Romanticising something that doesn’t exist. It’s an acknowledgement of some of the more murky places your mind goes when you’re figuring yourself out. Acting like a teenager (whatever that means) in your mid-twenties,” offer the band. It’s also very, very good.
The band are playing some shows. The dates are as follows.
01 Manchester – Soup Kitchen
02 Nottingham – Rough Trade
08 Leeds – Wharf Chambers
14 Durham – Alington House
