Big Scout Unveil Single 'How Lovely'

Big Scout Unveil Single 'How Lovely'

Sam Denne / Friday 8th July, 2022 12:34PM

If Lonely Planet were looking for prospective authors to pen a chapter about Wellington, I’d say the members of Big Scout would be low down the list of candidates lest they kill the Windy City’s tourism industry. How they wound up in Waiharakeke / Blenheim is anyone’s guess, but judging by the ruckus content described in the lyrics of their new single ‘How Lovely’, the band may have been looking for a slightly less frenetic lifestyle. Detailing smoky bus stops and pinger-fuelled romps about Courtney Place, ‘How Lovely’ is an ode to a “wasted youth” spent in cold flats warmed only by cheap heaters and cheaper beer. Other honourable mentions include the efforts of the capital's esteemed parking wardens and getting snubbed by men in ‘neo-liberal blue’ or, as I call them, Business Crips.

It's the third release from an eagerly anticipated debut full length Council Sport which is set to drop August 19th via Christchurch label Melted Ice Cream Records, releasing in conjunction with a nationwide tour. If you plan on giving your liver a hard time this weekend, maybe listen to ‘How Lovely’, as it’s very well what you may be singing when the morning light penetrates the curtains...

'Council Sport' launches on Friday 19th August via Melted Ice Cream Records — vinyl preorders available HERE.
