audiobooks have shared their latest single “Tryna Tryna Take Control,” along with the news, the duo comprised of David Wrench (Fran Ocean, Caribou) and Evangeline Ling, have announced a run of dates with Dry Cleaning, stops include, London, Birmingham, Glasgow, End of the Road Festival, and more.

Speaking about “Tryna Tryna Take Control,” audiobooks say:
“After having to wait so long between finishing recording Astro Tough and its release, we wanted to record and release something quickly. This track draws musical inspiration from 70s Brazilian legends Caetano Veloso, and Milton Nasciomento as well as smooth 80s pop stars Sade and Terence Trent D’Arby …. but all put together with a very post punk attitude.”

They add, in their characteristically cryptic fashion:
“Things are not always as they appear. Goody Two-Shoes are often very confusing. On one level they want everyone to see their halo and on another they want to put everybody else down. Their halo is made of plastic, it’s just for show! What better name for an Owl than Ronnie O Sullivan? The enigmatic snooker genius who can simultaneously play with wild instinct and killer precision.”

Multi-instrumentalist and producer/mixer Wrench, has collaborated with Frank Ocean, the xx, Caribou, David Byrne, Manic Street Preachers, and Goldfrapp,and more.
