The Love Language Release New Single "Bees" Ahead of Upcoming Tour

The Love Language are here with a groovy new track to soundtrack your spring, and just in time for their upcoming North America tour alongside labelmates Teenage Fanclub.

Aptly titled “Bees,” the power-pop track is teeming with fuzzed-out goodness optimally crafted for shaking the winter from your bones. “For about a week or so last December, I tried to do a song-a-day exercise,” explains bandleader Stuart McLamb in a statement. “Some were ok, some were really bad, but this one stood out.”

McLamb also cites “listening to a lot of fuzzy pop/punk stuff (Exploding Hearts, Buzzcocks, Wire, Strokes, GBV, etc.)” as an influence for the track, something that comes through in the song’s grunge-laden, yet vibrant and classically sunny sensibility.

Check out the song for yourself below, along with The Love Language’s 2011 Daytrotter Session, and scan the band’s tour dates further down. Tickets for their tour can be purchased here.
