Following the announcement of their thrilling debut album Brickbat (to be released February 15th via Bella Union) and the release of first track "Everlastingly Yours", today Piroshka are pleased to share another exceptional track titled “What's Next?”.
Piroshka is comprised of former Lush vocalist/guitarist Miki Berenyi, former Moose guitarist KJ "Moose" McKillop, Modern English bassist Mick Conroy and former Elastica drummer Justin Welch.
Speaking on the new track, Berenyi comments: "'What's Next' started life as a guitar-and-drums demo from Justin that he'd called 'Protest' - the drums being inspired by the idea of a protest march. It's one of the very first songs Piroshka worked on together. The lyrics are inspired by the shock and fallout regarding current political upheavals - how this finger-pointing and rage and blame are so damaging, how we need to get back some kind of solidarity if we possibly can because the divisions between us are playing into certain people's hands. Funnily enough, the song was called Time's Up when it was first recorded, but that title then got taken so we thought we'd better change it! It's the only track on the album mixed by Alan Moulder - before we got picked up by Bella Union, we had an album's worth of demos but we only had enough money to get one of them mixed!"
