Swansea quartet Picsel return again with their latest single ‘The Heat’, the final release before their debut album.

If you’re feeling crushed under the weight of stuff that really doesn’t matter? Tempted to punch your boss square in the kisser? Then the new single will get you dripping in sweat in the remnants that are dripping down the rehearsal room.

So quit your job, leave your wife, get out of the shade and “fully embrace ‘The Heat'” in the words, so elegantly put by the band.

Created as a side project of Broken Fires, Picsel are snappy pop punk mixed with the spirit of late 90s grunge and Weezer-like vocals. The band are the raw ‘screw-you punk’ of Fidlar and anthemic energy of Japandroids.

The new LP, titled Modern Life Discovery, is a collection of powerful songs that document the awkwardness of living which was completely written by accident. After spending months writing for their other project Broken Fires, the punk and hooky tunes had to be released as a separate project, hence Picsel being born.
