Bee Bee Sea return with new single ‘Time and Time’ – UK tour in May
BEE BEE SEA
NEW SINGLE ‘TIME AND TIME’ OUT NOW ON WILD HONEY RECORDS
UK TOUR IN MAY, INCLUDING HEADLINE SHOW AT LONDON’S SHACKLEWELL ARMS
Italian psych-garage heroes Bee Bee Sea return with new single ‘Time and Time‘ and a full UK Tour in the Spring.
‘Time and Time’ is an introspective song about the inescapable passing of time. Cynical and nostalgic, yet powerful, the track is loosely inspired by Richard Hell and the Voidoids’ song ‘Time’, from which the verse “only time can write a song that’s really real” is taken.
Musically, ‘Time and Time’ represents something of a departure from the sound of their latest record, 2020’s ‘Day Ripper’, falling somewhere between Black Rebel Motorcycle Club and The Stooges and enhanced by the addition of the electric piano played by Marco Giudici, who also produced the track.
Bee Bee Sea have already confirmed live dates in Spain and Italy, and they will return to the UK in May for a string of dates, which will include a London headline show at the Shacklwell Arms and an appearance at Manchester’s Meltchester Festival.
