THE WEDDING PRESENT release video to ‘Scotland’ taken from RSD release ‘Home Internationals’ EP

‘Home Internationals’ plays out like the sound track to a yet unmade film. To begin, we are transported to a pub in Glasgow on the track ‘Scotland’. Close your eyes and you can imagine the barman pouring that irresistible first pint of the night as the cheerful banter gets going. Then we travel to ‘Northern Ireland’ for a poppy, joyful tribute to Belfast-born wing wizard, George Best.

The next voice you hear belongs to poet and playwright Simon Armitage representing ‘England’ with his topical work ‘The English’ over a moody string-inspired opening, which ends in typical Wedding Present fashion; a sea of raging guitars and glorious feedback. The big finish is in ‘Wales’ (taken from Going, Going…) for a Welsh love poem with its huge, building, pulsating outro.

El Segell del Primavera is a record label associated with Barcelona’s Primavera Sound festival. The Wedding Present will perform at the label’s party in Barcelona on 31 May 2017.

“The boy Gedge has written some of the best love songs of the ‘Rock ‘n’ Roll’ era. You may dispute this but I’m right and you’re wrong!” John Peel
