on 5th December
Forced to face 20 questions by your partner's disapproving mum? Peculiar Disco Moves release When Your Mother Goes Home, an addictive hook-littered pop rollercoaster to provide a light-hearted anecdote to this very situation that has haunted mankind since the dawn of time.
The single will be available to purchase via Peculiar Disco Moves' bandcamp page and will be supported by a special launch event at Newcastle's Castle Keep and the Bridge Hotel on Friday 21st November.
A very appropriate and yet surprising video is being prepared for your enjoyment right now. We'll be in touch when it's ready to view.
When Your Mother Goes Home is simple in sentiment, based on young love struggling to blossom because of a mother's refusal to accept her daughter's foray into the world of relationships. It is a catchy pop narrative that conveys anger at a situation that can prove stifling and challenging, but unravels with Peculiar Disco Moves own indomitable quirky style.
Peculiar Disco Moves have had a successful year, following the release of their last single, Lost For Words, which featured a time machine video with the band revisiting past eras of musical significance. This song was also recently hand picked for inclusion on New York-label Factory Fast Records compilation release Pitch Black Heart. The band carried this momentum into a busy season of Festivals which took them to Manchester, Derbyshire and Yorkshire, as well as a clutch of local appearances including NARC Fest, Oxjam and supporting Voice Of The North choir at The Sage.
Peculiar Disco Moves have had widespread coverage and acclaim from their past releases, notably in the form of Chronicle and Journal Magazine features, BBC Introducing, BBC 6 Music and Amazing Radio play, a HMV in-store appearance, and a novelty video made for lead singer Alix's football team Bradford City reaching the Carling Cup Final in 2013, which spawned over 10,000 views on YouTube.
