Manchester based indie rock/electro-art rock band Dutch Uncles have premiered their new single “Poppin“.
The song features on their long-awaited sixth studio album ‘True Entertainment‘, which will be out on March 10, 2023 via Memphis Industries. Pre-order your copy here.
Commenting on the track, vocalist Duncan Wallis says: “Poppin’ is a minimal take on the age-old anxieties, dread and fear we all experience at certain times – bumping into old faces hungover (or worse, not hungover), taking too long to answer the question ‘you alright?’, forgetting everyone’s name and constantly assessing if old faces were present at any moments of particular cringe in your past.”

Taking inspiration from Yellow Magic Orchestra, Prince, Steely Dan, Ennio Morricone, The Blue Nile, Kate Bush and Roxy Music, “True Entertainment behaves like it knows it’s been away for some time, and doesn’t apologise for that,” jokes vocalist / lyricist Duncan Wallis. “Ultimately, it’s written with the mindset that on our sixth album, we’re only in competition with ourselves when it comes to finding satisfaction in our craft.”
