Japanese Television continues to solidify their iconic status in all they do. The band are set to release their new single “Bumble Rumble” as park of a limited edition 7″ single in line with the band’s biggest headline UK tour to date and live supports for Snapped Ankles.

The ardent composition spirals into this sonic soundscape and captivating chaos, this double a-side single is described as showcasing the band surfing a swirling wave of reverb-drenched organ, garage-rock guitars, hypno-motorik bass and pounding, ritualistic drums. Once again preferring to work in a village hall deep in the wilds of the east British countryside, JTV recorded live to an old 8 track machine with The Wytches’ Kristian Bell masterfully at. the helm.

Kristian sums it up well, ‘Bumble Rumble is relentless.’ As the band add, ‘Our most brutal offering to date.’

In 2020 the band released their five track EP III, an instantly classic slice of motorik space twang before calling in top remixers including UNKLE, Gabe Gurnsey, and James Welsh for a 2021 RSD Exclusive Remix album. EP I, II and III were all given the accolade of BBC 6Music EPs of the year. Now they have they’re most exciting body of work ready to unleash on the world and beyond.

We are delighted to share the new video for the single, streaming below:

Bumble Rumble” will consume you. This flawless instrumentation which delves into the world of obscurity, experimentation, and this fearless committed passion. Entirely immersive. The video captures the energy of this magnificent outfit, in a room together their talent explodes and the new film showcases that impressive unison when all musicians collide and excel. The ability to capture that explosive energy on film and within their recorded material is something else.

Japanese Television have defined their characteristics, emerging their audience into this finely tuned abrasive ensemble that is equal parts fierce, hypnotic, and expressive. “Bumble Rumble” explores the outfits’ ability to project this mammoth whirl of aggression into their structures as they hone in on this ambitious world filled with rhythmic passages and this vibrant tone. The new release allows this impressionable atmosphere to dynamically shift the intensity throughout, as each musician adds layer upon layer of complex notes, dazzling keys and crashing cymbals.

With their new arrangement, “Bumble Rumble” documents the bands’ further exploration of sounds and styles to fuse with their wide-eyed psychedelia and the bands’ love of melody.
