The duo have signed to Warp Records...

London based duo Jockstrap have shared their fascinating new single 'Acid'.

The band rightfully gained plaudits for their intriguing 2018 mini-album 'Love Is The Key To The City', before taking a backseat.

Comprised of Georgia Ellery and Taylor Skye, you might well recognise Ellery from her recent role in Bafta winning Cornish film BAIT.

Recently signing to Warp Records, their first release on the legendary stable is new electro-pop fizzer 'Acid'.

It's emblematic of the way the pair work - with Taylor Skye sculpting a "beautiful sound world" around Ellery's distinctive songwriting.

She comments: "'Acid' is a track for my brother. It’s expansive, vibrant and filled with love. Taylor designed this beautiful sound world: I sent him a 6/8 ballad and he sent me back this other worldly thing.”

Taylor Skye adds: “Georgia sent me this swooning, expressive, tender piano demo and I did my best to match it. It was real fun to produce. I feel like this is the most uplifting song we’ve made so far - it almost has summer vibes."

Tune in now.

Catch Jockstrap supporting Anna Meredith at London's EartH on February 5th.
