Available digitally and as a limited vinyl release via Nine x Nine Records, entitled EVERYTHING’S WRONG, BUT IT’S ALRIGHT their debut is the culmination of recording sessions with Rod Jones (Idlewild) at Post Electric Studio. Working together to form 11 tracks, an accumulation of song writing ideas spanning years.
Million $ Man is the album’s example of taking a staple live track and letting the studio process completely re-map its direction. The once folky-skiffle ditty is now a hard-hitting, anthemic call to arms, complete with a crafty hook and chorus to match.
Like so many songs before, Million $ Man is an upbeat indie-pop tune that masks a sobering and very rarely explored subject matter – the challenges of a life-long physical disability. It’s an honest and frank perception that attempts to deal with issues that will resonate with a particular section of our community.
During an unprecedented yet poignant global situation, Bobhowla’s debut album EVERYTHING’S WRONG, BUT IT’S ALRIGHT serves to soundtrack the daily challenges we all faced for nearly a year.
Years of solo acoustic performances around the North West have honed an acoustic base into more gritted tones, alongside folk, electronica and dream-pop influences.
EVERYTHING’S WRONG, BUT IT’S ALRIGHT will also be available on Limited Edition Blue coloured Heavyweight Vinyl – 150 pieces, full lyrics booklet and download card. To pre-order, click here.
