Limited Edition vinyl 7” (500 copies).
The debut single from their album Long Black Cars, Eskimo Kiss is drummer Jonny ‘Huddersfield’ Helm’s first foray into lead vocals on a Wave Pictures album. With lyrics by long-time collaborator Stanley Brinks – and penned in the canteen on the 2nd floor of NYC’s Harlem Hospital - it’s a song Dave Tattersall describes as “very enigmatic, dark and mysterious yet still peppered with details of the everyday”.
The ‘everyday’ is a topic close to the Wave Pictures collective hearts – “we find the mundane magical: the everyday amazes me. What could be more extraordinary and more ordinary than the sunrise?” Long Black Cars was recorded over 4 days in New York City in the Bushwick area of Brooklyn, and features many of the band’s friends including Turner Cody and The WoWz.
