French Wives, ones of my highlights from Hinterland, and all around ace band have a new single out in a few weeks.
They’ve very kindly sent over the b-side, Hyndland Weather Bear, which you can – if I’ve got the widget thingy working – listen to below.
What is a Hyndland Weather Bear you ask?
Well, according to the band: “next time you’re in Hyndland be sure to look at the flat above the Peckhams on Hyndland Road (at the top of Clarence Drive) and you’ll see a teddy bear who is dressed on a daily basis to suit the day’s weather conditions.”
I’m not too sure how that works out, giving Scotland’s liking for weather that changes by the hour, but still, aww, that’s sweet.
I dare say there’ll be a review of it round here sometime before then too.
Update! There’s also this little promo video to go with the single.
