Manchester, UK band Dutch Uncles, will return with Big Balloon, their new studio album, due out on February 17th via Memphis Industries.
The band, recently shared their latest single “Streetlight”. The track is about becoming content with your loneliness,” Dutch Uncles’ vocalist Duncan Wallis explains. “It’s about being skeptical, but aware and open to new chances at connecting again. It’s about realizing your own needs, possibly for the first time.”
Taking musical inspiration from Kate Bush’s The Red Shoes, Low-era David Bowie, some slightly-less fashionable records belonging to their Dads and East European techno, Big Balloon is the fifth Dutch Uncles studio album and the follow-up to 2015’s acclaimed O Shudder.
Big Balloon was recorded in Manchester’s Old Granada TV Studios where Sex Pistols and Joy Division made their televisual debuts.
Dutch Uncles are Duncan Wallis, Robin Richards, Peter Broadhead and Andrew Proudfoot.
