The Wedding Present – Jump In The Water’s Fine – Panama, 10″ Vinyl, Picture Disc, 2019
Indie luminaries The Wedding Present release a brand new single this summer, their first new material since the spring of 2017. Released via Come Play With Me, the single features two new tracks: Jump In, The Water’s Fine and Panama.
Set to be a collector’s item, the single is available on 7” and limited edition 10” picture disc – the band’s first! – including specially commissioned artwork by Darren Hayman (Hefner).
Co-written by David Gedge and new guitarist Danielle Wadey – she was previously the band’s bass player – both tracks were recorded at the legendary Monnow Valley studios in Wales under the watchful eye of multi-Grammy award winning producer Andrew Scheps and engineer Matt Glasbey.
Opening with squalls of feedback, Jump In, The Water’s Fine is an epic tale with trademark whirlwind Wedding Present guitar and a deceptively sweet melody. B-side Panama, is a frenetic slice of indie-pop, where ferocious guitars and heavy drums collide with honest lyrics about love and friendship.
