The Pigeon Detectives unveil new single Lose Control

Pigeon Detectives

Platinum-selling Leeds band The Pigeon Detectives are back with new single ‘Lose Control’ from their fifth album, which is planned for released in February 2017.

The new track is a diverse approach than compared to their previous albums and first single of that LP is ‘Lose Control’. It is one of the most reminiscent of what the Pigeon Detectives used to produce in tracks such as ‘Take Her Back’ and ‘Romantic Type’ but still stands alone next to the catalogue with a mesmerising guitar line and echoing rhythm section leading into the typical earworm chorus line of ‘You love it when I lose control’.

The single is released online on 30 September which came with a UK tour in small venues that sold out in days taking the band to intimate surroundings across the UK. Now that is unfortunately over. They will be heading out on a larger tour in February and March 2017.

Recorded with Richard Formby; a producer associated with bands like indie crooners Wild Beasts, leftfield London vocalist Ghostpoet and ‘mind-expanding synth pioneers’ Spaceman 3. Speaking about the move to work with a more leftfield producer-singer Matt Bowman says;

“We wanted to work with someone that would challenge us in the studio and put us out of our comfort zone, not let us take any easy ways out with songs. Richard did this and made us change our approach completely from previous records. We ended up ditching a lot of tunes that had a sound that could have been on the first albums as a result.”
