‘Something Else Will Come Along’, the first new material since last year’s acclaimed debut album ‘Suppose’, will be available digitally at all the usual major outlets.
A simple and beautifully augmented piece of music, the new track features Alabaster dePlume on saxophone and was recorded in London’s feted and fated DIY hub Total Refreshment Centre. A sober post-Brexit narrative that ranges from Abu Hamza to Coronation Street, ‘Something Else Will Come Along’ is characteristic of the humour that runs throughout the band’s work and wouldn’t feel out of place in a Mike Leigh film.
The Blue House line up, fronted by former Fiction guitarist James Howard and Drop Out Venus drummer Ursula Russell, have had a busy year since the release of their aforementioned debut long player. There is a new body of material tracked and they’ve established a monthly South London night called ‘Incredible Society for The Exploration of Popular Song’ that’s played host he likes of Snapped Ankles, Alabaster dePlume and Le Volume Courbe vs Grimm Grimm. There was a lost week in Copenhagen staging a gallery improv sit-in with artist Phillips Reeves during which they dressed as chefs and mangled tracks from the British patriotic canon and they also welcomed new members into the Blue House live and studio family.
Currently in the studio putting the finishing touches to their second album, Blue House will play the following London shows with a rotating selection of band members and friends at the following venues. More live dates will be announced in the coming months.
