New album out imminently, Tour planned for February
London/Glasweigan Post-punkers Shoppinghave shared their second single "Wild Child". The upcoming album, The Official Body is due19th January via FatCat Records. Edwyn Collins held the producer reigns and recorded the trio.
Singer-guitarist Rachel Aggs explains of the single "Wild Child" sees the band acknowledging the cracks in the facade of one’s idols. “I was specifically thinking about the way some drag queens do this really well,“It's about projecting the persona of someone who is always free, always partying and you can't imagine them ever worrying about their work rota or buying cereal. It's important to see through it, to know it's fake but at the same time, it's so intriguing and seductive. I think this anarchic, flamboyant spirit is really important to queer culture.”
Accompanying the single is a neon showbiz fantasy themed video, created with Jack Barraclough, watch it below.
