Bodega Return With New Album 'Broken Equipment'
It's out on March 11th...

New York art-punks Bodega have laid out plans for new album 'Broken Equipment'.

The band's second album, it's out on March 11th and will coincide with a batch of UK tour dates.

Lead single 'Doers' is incredibly infectious, with the lyrics echoing the language used in self-help books and vlogs.

There's a sly irony here, however, with Bodega tackling the toxicity that runs alongside forced productivity; there's even a jab at Daft Punk, with its mantra of "bitter, harder, fatter, stressed out."

Bodega's Ben Hozie comments...

"Sometime on tour near the end of 2019 I found myself reading and watching a plethora of self-help books and Youtube vids. This started from a genuine desire for spiritual and physical improvement but I soon started noticing how advertisements everywhere were utilising the language of self-help. I was being programmed."

"‘You don’t have time to cook dinner tonight because you are too busy crushing it as a doer —> You are creating next level content and don’t have time to hang out w/ friends or family this weekend so download this app and have ready-made food delivered to you for 29.99.’ This ideology of constant productivity forces you to treat your own body, mind, time, and friends as products to mine ——> As a result the world becomes a smaller, duller place. All artists (all people) desire to be productive : 'Function is the key.' Yet... If a photo is taken of you in the woods: for all millennia you’ll always be stuck in the woods."

The video picks up on Millennial reference points, including nods to key clips by Slipknot and director Hype Williams - tune in now.

'Broken Equipment' will be released on March 11th.

'Honeymoon Suite'

Something came over Lees in lockdown.

A period of forced reflection, the time alone pushed her thoughts ever inward, allowing her to process some deeply held emotions.

New single 'Honeymoon Suite' is the result. The sound of someone going through some things, and coming out the other side, it's a gliding, refulgent piece of alt-pop.

Designed to operate at a slo-mo pace, her meditative vocal deals with a mosaic of break ups - removed from her family, from friends, and relationships - before finally placing her stronger, alone.

“This song is just a mess of memories” says Lees. “I like that it feels lyrically a bit chaotic and confusing because that’s completely what I was feeling when I wrote it. ‘Honeymoon Suite’ is about the good times flooding back, trying to appreciate them, and moving on.”

A gorgeous starting point for this potent newcomer, you can check out 'Honeymoon Suite' below.
