The track – which also features UK rapper Dylan Cartlidge – is the latest preview of the London-based pop collective’s forthcoming second album ‘World Wide Pop’, following the Stuart Price-produced ‘Teenager’.
Speaking about the glitchy, hip-hop-infused new track in a press release, the band said: “We’ve been enormous fans of Stephen Malkmus forever, and we loved the idea of combining Malkmus and Scott Walker into a strange almost broken-sounding hip hop track.
“We’d done a remix for Dylan Cartlidge and absolutely loved his flow; we asked him if he’d like to try a verse and he fit so naturally. With Dylan being from the north of England and Stephen in Portland, the rain theme is all the more fitting for them too.”

Reviewing the band’s self-titled debut album, NME‘s Thomas Smith wrote: “It’s full of colourful characters and, for the most part, each song plays its part in this ambitious and vibrant debut record. Little before has sounded quite as unhinged but fun.”
