The Go! Team have shared wonderful new single 'Mayday'.
The cosmic pop collective are set to return with a new album next year, and the previews are coming thick and fast.
New single 'Mayday' is online now, and it's a sitar-driven soul-pop stomper with more than a hint of Motown surrounding it.
The bleeping Morse code message sits in the spirit of ABBA's 'SOS', with The Go! Team leader Ian Parton explaining:
“I’ve always wanted to do a song with Morse code in it and when I hit upon the idea of applying a mayday distress signal to love problems I was surprised it had never been done before. Once you got that idea you can really lay on the metaphors: “hit by a category 5”, “sinking fast in the sea I cried”, “come in - do you read me”. I’ve always loved those soul songs which equate boy trouble to emergencies - pure Shangri-Las style melodrama, backcombed to oblivion."
Tune in now.
