Pocket of Lollipops presents their new single ‘Face Value’
Pocket Of Lollipops releases the first single ‘Face Value’ from their upcoming 6th album Be My Non Friend Friend. The album, set to be released early April, comes as a celebration of the band’s 10th anniversary of their first ever performance (at Lisa Rockford’s AntiValentines Day Party in 2009). ‘Face Value’ is a high energy, sonic collage of influence, reminiscent of Violent Femmes or The B-52’s, the track perfectly merging avant-garde quirkiness with infectious beats.
Their organic textures pay homage to the gritty, make-shift scenes of decades past, as well as future galaxies of possibility. With a manifesto to exist as a driving force of conceptual subculture, obliterating formula and the confines of traditional music production, the band certainly delivers. A multidisciplinary collective, Pocket of Lollipops delivers their truly experiential work through numerous vehicles. Their communication working through mediums of sound waves, DIY projection and video, hand-painted cassettes, homemade buttons and clothing, props, sets, poetry, and interactive creative processes.
