TUNE The Tea Street Band - Only Love
THE NEW SINGLE AVAILABLE TODAY
FROM ‘FREQUENCY’ THE NEW ALBUM RELEASED NOVEMBER 9TH
ON MODERN SKY UK
‘Only Love’ is the new single from The Tea Street Band, available to stream today. The track is the second single to be taken from the cult Liverpool band’s forthcoming sophomore album ‘Frequency’, which will be released on November 9th on Modern Sky UK.
"Only Love is a song about living for eternity, never getting old, but in reality that’s just on the inside,” says frontman Timo Tierney. “Watching plenty of mind-bending films, the obvious Bladerunner and Only Lovers Left Alive, inspired parts of the song too. Any song that comes in with a drumbeat is a winner in my eyes! There’s plenty of the chorus and super break and outro. It sums up The Tea Street Band defo!"
Also available to stream now and as instant grats with album pre-orders are lead single 'Marseille Blues' and uplifting new track 'Feel It'.
‘Frequency’ is the follow up to The Tea Street Band’s 2014’s self-titled debut, which was supported by tastemakers Huw Stephens, John Kennedy, Janice Long, and Rob Da Bank, saw them tour with The Charlatans, Jimi Goodwin and Jagwar Ma, and had Shack’s Michael Head heralding them as his new favourite band.
The Tea Street Band follow in the tradition of tunefully idiosyncratic Liverpool bands like The Coral, The Lightning Seeds, and Shack, though their blissful Electronica sounds like none of those bands. Rather, The Tea Street Band are closer to artists like Tunng and Teleman, blending instrumentation with synths and beats. Like so many Liverpool artists, at the heart of The Tea Street Band is a keen ear for melody. Driven by propulsive hooks, their songs grab from the get-go, often building to a euphoric rush.
Recorded over a year in Liverpool’s fabled Parr Street Studios with Chris Taylor (Ian Brown, Millburn), ‘Frequency’ is a big leap forward for The Tea Street Band. “The writing process was different than the first album,” says frontman Timo Tierney. “We wrote it together, with all of us having a massive input on each song. The title and the artwork (photo By John Johnson, designed by Dom Foster), it’s all of ours. We have all pushed each other musically and I think it really shows on the record.”
Like any great second album, ‘Frequency’ is the sound of a band who have found their sound whilst constantly pushing for more.
The Tea Street Band will follow the album’s release with a UK headline tour, starting with two night’s at Liverpool’s District on November 15th & 16th (already sold-out), and including London’s Slaughtered Lamb on December 1st. Tickets on general sale now.
