It doesn’t seem like it, but ‘Strange Year’ by Team Picture, off of the new album ‘Recital’, is all about ‘War’! From the dregs of riffs in the beginning of the song – gritty, winds rising up to the high priests of the sky – travels up your spine, then down the synth heavy framed lyrics and vocals. Yes. It’s war against that feeling. It’s war against that notion. It’s war against that knot in your chest.
That knot is big. It ‘hurts’.
Because that’s what love does.
Get out of my head.
Get out of my heart.
Come into my life.
Not in the way you’d like.
The Leeds six piece band takes it up a notch, and then some.
Following ‘(I Have A) Little Secret’ and ‘(I Want Your) Life Hack’, ‘Strange Year’ is the third single to be taken from the band’s upcoming new album.
Team Picture heads out on a lengthy UK run this May/June, taking in headline dates in London, Manchester and Leeds as well as festival slots at The Great Escape, Liverpool Sound City and Sounds From The Other City.
