June 25, 2015


For fans of: Flaming Lips, Stereolab, The Breeders, Grandaddy

“A retro delight…” – The Guardian

“…open-hearted pop that has you clutching your knees with glee”
– Drowned In Sound

Piney Gir will be heading to Glastonbury Festival this weekend to play The Rabbit Hole at 7pm on Saturday 27th June.

However, if you’re one of the many who didn’t manage to pick up a ticket for this year’s festival, you can still catch Piney’s live show when she launches her forthcoming album, mR hYDE’S wILD rIDE, on 6th July at The Lexington.

Piney’s video for ‘Golden Heart’ premiered on Clash Magazine‘s website, who described it as “Simple, innocent yet striking.” You can watch it now via Damaged Goods’ YouTube channel.

You can also stream single Keep It Together via the ABoF SoundCloud page, and watch the video that premiered on Artrocker via YouTube.

Piney’s previous video ‘Gold Rules’ premiered on Gigwise and is now available to watch on the Damaged Goods YouTube channel.

Piney has pulled together a stellar band for her latest album, with members of Gaz Coombes and Emiliana Torrini‘s touring band jumping in on guitar, bass and drums alongside The Smith Brothers & regular collaborator Garo Nahoulakian taking a seat in the producer’s chair. Andy Ramsay of Stereolab makes an appearance on drums, and the bulk of the album was recorded in his South London studio. The rest was whipped-up in Piney’s little Hackney Studio, small and perfectly formed like a musical toy box, chock-full of space echo, marimba, omnichord and pocket piano, which combine to create a euphoric indie-starshine. Think Yoshimi-era Flaming Lips alongside sparkling tableaux of Mercury Rev., the tunefulness of Grandaddy and riff-led counter-melodies like Pixies

mR hYDE’S wILD rIDE is released 29th June 2015 via Damaged Goods.
