Finally! Some Punk Spirit


WAVE MACHINES

NEW SINGLE – PUNK SPIRIT – RELEASED 31st AUGUST
NEAPOLITAN RECORDINGS

I broke the neck on my guitar,
And told you how it’s going to be.
And later when you left the room,
I whispered, "You can fucking die”.
.
And every time your back is turned,
I put a finger in the air.
And every time you turn around,
I hide it ‘cos I know it hurts.

Where’s my punk spirit?
When I need it?


Premiered by Zane Lowe on Radio 1 - in the wake of Wave Machines’ Glastonbury appearance - passive-aggressive anthem Punk Spirit is released as a single on 31st August on Neapolitan Recordings. A song dedicated “To anyone who ever ran away from a fight, then daydreamed an epic victory from the safety of their bed.”

Glastonbury was the first of several high profile festival shows for the in-demand live band including Electric Picnic, Bestival and main stage appearances at Green Man and Lovebox. With their debut long player a Rough Trade album Of The Week and summer dance-floor smash I Go I Go I Go - an iTunes Single of The Week – Wave Machines have been added to this month’s iTunes Festival at The Roundhouse in London on 23rd July with Graham Coxon and Esser.
