Wojtek the Bear release a new single, ‘Ferme La Bouche’ – their first for the Last Night From Glasgow label.
The track, which follows a string of releases from Scottish Fiction including 2018 long-player ‘A Talent For Being Unreasonable‘, trails the Glasgow quintet’s forthcoming album ‘Heaven By The Back Door’, due for release in July.
The track also shows off a more USA east coast feel to their sound, with a self-confessed “whisper of Philadelphia soul” also likely in the album, recorded across 2020 with Jamie Savage at Chem19.
The band – frontman and guitarist Tam Killean plus Graham ‘Chuck’ Norris (vocals and guitar), Scott McCutcheon (drums) Paul Kirkwood (vocals and bass), and Becky Cheminais (violin) – formed in Glasgow in early 2016 and have since gained airplay from the likes of Lauren Laverne, Tom Robinson and Huw Stephens on BBC Radio, John Kennedy & Gordon Smart at Radio X, plus KEXP in Seattle.
They have also gigged across the UK and Europe, featuring at numerous festivals as well as Belle & Sebastian’s Boaty Weekender, and hope to play a launch show for the album at Glasgow’s CCA.
