Birth Records & Heavenly Recordings have announced the signing of DRINKS, the new project from Cate Le Bon and Tim Presley, aka White Fence, whose album Hermits On Holiday will be released August 21. Check out the title-track below, which will be released as a 7″ single backed by a track titled “Eighteen Teenage Revenge Pair.”
“Tim, do I like that dog?” A strange question, a queer query, an odd ask. The answer surely already known unless one mind knows the other. Which would appear to be the case with Cate and Tim. With Tim and Cate.
Cate, born in West Wales, raised under the shadow of a woolen mill, dressed by the field and by the rain. Tim, from San Francisco, grew under and over the bridges and streets, combed by corners and by concrete.
A more different musical upbringing you couldn’t dream up. One a black thread strung through the eye of American hardcore, she a shard of glass tapped through a solid wall. Loop the thread around the shard and you have pendular device for predicting the sex. Will it be a boy or a girl?
DRINKS will be playing a number of festivals and headline shows in early September. Upcoming UK live dates, album artwork, and track list below:
