TMB faves Team Picture haven’t just bought snazzy costumes recently – they’ve also been hard at work on a new mini-album Recital and have shared the latest track ‘(I Want Your) Life Hack’.
A huge, dirty riff leads the song through melodious verses and into an addictive call-and-response anti-chorus, as if early Arcade Fire had read from the (neon) bible of Led Zeppelin. Meanwhile, pounding, calculated drums and low-level synths lend a slightly sinister undercurrent, playing nicely for now against that built-for-stadiums riff. My only criticism is how short it is – I’m renaming the track (I Want More) Life Hack in protest.
Recital is out 1st June via Big Dumb Music Ltd.
