Footsteps Look Listen


London tweepopsters Pocketbooks have a wizard new single they'd love you to hear. Footsteps is taken from their debut album Flight Paths which, like an unsuperstitious summertime debutante, comes out on July 13th.

You can also catch the band (not literally - well, not unless they've developed a sudden and unexpected penchant for stagediving) over the summer playing live on/at the following dates, venues and places.

Tuesday 9 June: Madame Jo Jos, London (with the Pains Of Being Pure At Heart)
Tuesday 7 July: Catch, London
Thursday 23 July: Jamm, London
Saturday 25 July: Indietracks festival, Ripley, Derbyshire
Friday 21 August@ P!O!P Kombinat, NBI, Berlin

But before the album and the gigs, here's that single!

N.B. If Spike had been doing this entry she'd have made a much better fist of it than I just have, as she's a long-standing Pocketbooks fan (she bought their album at the London Popfest earlier this year, if memory serves). But sadly for them - and you - Spike doesn't really get round to blogging much (or at all) these days, so you're stuck with this poor excuse for an entry instead. (It's the way I tell 'em.)

I thank 'e Kips - I'm going to make a serious effort to haul my tired old arse along to one of those London gigs because I like the cut of their gib and Emma Pocketbook's my friend on Last FM now too.

Footsteps is a fantastic choice for a single and the whole album is bloody brilliant!

I love them Pocketbooks, I do!
