TUNE Shopping - The Hype
Shopping release brand new single ‘The Hype’ via Fat Cat Records on 17th November.
Having spent the past few years touring all over the world, as well as splitting their time between other creative and musical projects, post-punk trio Shopping return with the bold, spiky new single ‘The Hype’.
The track is about thinking for yourself and taking matters into your own hands. “It’s a wakeup call to action that says don’t believe everything you hear, always question what’s presented to you and don’t just sit around and think about making change before it’s too late…But it’s also a party song! We liked off-setting the serious dead-pan lyrics with the relaxed, yet self-assured funk of the song itself. We had a lot of fun writing it - it has a guitar solo and everything!”
Shopping will tour the UK this November: Wharf Chamber Leeds (7th), Crescent York (8th), Gwdihw Café Bar Cardiff (9th), Kamio London (10th).
