We’re more than proud to be premiering the brand new track and video form The Lovely Eggs, the wonderfully titled ‘Wiggy Giggy’. It’s a track that shares the notion of continuously trying to escape the society which is more than likely the best for you.
Currently on tour with Phil Jupitus as Porky The Poet as a support act, the band are showing their conceptual talents on this latest track. At first glance, it’s a glam-tinged, glitchy trip in to indie-outer-space. But digging a little deeper the song holds a strong sentiment.
Of the single, guitarist/vocalist Holly Ross said: “It is inspired by a book we used to read to our son, about a spaceman who went off exploring other planets but every planet he went to, there was something inhospitable or wrong with it and when he landed back on planet Earth he realised that after all his cosmic travels that earth was the best place for him to live. It was pretty deep and we really identified with it. We feel the same about Lancaster where we live. It might be a shithole, but it’s OUR shithole and we love it. Not much goes on up here and there’s not much to do so it’s kind of like living in space. But we like being cosmonauts!”
The track itself is out on Friday, and with their self-directed (Plasticine featuring) video below you can get a feel for the upcoming album. The track is taken from their new Dave Fridmann (Flaming Lips/Mercury Rev/Tame Impala) produced album, This Is Eggland, which is out on 23 February on the band’s own Egg Records.
