The Wave Pictures Announce UK Tour

September 22, 2009 by  


After a summer spent criss-crossing the continent playing a host of festivals, The Wave Pictures get ready for a run of UK autumn dates and the release of a new single.

?Strawberry Cables? is out on the 26th October on 7? and download through Moshi Moshi.

The band will be supported on the tour by long time collaborator Stanley Brinks (aka Andre Herman Dune) plus Freschard.

Stanley?s horn playing also features ?Strawberry Cables? ? a song which The Wave Pictures frontman David Tattersal describes ?as very sad? and the horn sections of which were influenced by a Lou Reed?s ?New York City Man?.

?Strawberry Cables? is taken from current album ?If You Leave It Alone?. This album embraces a ?very proper, very old fashioned way of recording?, cutting back on the electric arrangements of their debut, favouring horns and finger picking and placing a renewed focus on story telling.
