Back in February, we flew the flag hard for Dublin quartet Bedrooms. Bearing the imprint of indie rock royalty including Dinosaur Jr, Galaxie 500, Guided by Voices and Pavement, we lauded their ability to bridge the gap between dream-pop and gazed-out indie via a straight-up slowcore sensibility.
Recorded with Girl Band’s Daniel Fox in his Stoneybatter studio last November, new single ‘Party Piece’ delivers much of the same, the song conjures Dean Wareham stepping in on a stripped-back Cocteau Twins jam. “We sort of wrote this one backwards,” Devin from the band told us. “We had the second half of the song for a couple of weeks before the first so had to kinda find a way to fit the two pieces together. For the recording, we just wanted to make a little kooked out slow jam.”
Ahead of further new Bedrooms material (recorded by none other than Bill Ryder Jones in West Kirby), have a first listen to ‘Party Piece’ below.
