Johnny5thWheel&thecowards, the Manchester based experimental folk pop collective led by ‘Johnny’ aka Richard Lomax, are set to release a double A-side single, ‘Nancy’/’My Laboratory’, from their forthcoming second album.
According to the issued press release, “‘Nancy’ is a fantastical dream of a girl possessed by a dream of a possibly fictional world. It’s a spirallic sketch of musical obsession and shifting lyrical rhythms, composed with Hitchcockian grandeur and Ennio Morricone landscaping.”
The other A-side, ‘My Laboratory’, is inspired and partly dedicated to storytellers Tom Waits and Thomas Truax.
‘Nancy’/’My Laboratory’ will drop on June 25th via Sotones Records and the new album is due out in September. Listen to both tracks below.
