about

Burning Condors release their new single ‘Polka Dot Girl’ on 2 September 2013 through Snakehand Records.

The band’s hard hitting style has led to some music critics hailing them as leaders of a new guitar punk movement, with BBC 6Music’s Tom Robinson describing their sound on his Fresh on the Net blog as ‘...grab you by the ears and not let you go…dirty and dirty in a good way...’. Whilst Surrounded by Music magazine proclaimed “Burning Condors are an inspirational melding of deep, dark blues with the best of British early punk - think Bowie, think Joy Division.”

Unashamedly catchy, ‘Polka Dot Girl’ finds the band in a playful mood. Musically the song re-calls the primal energy and fun of 1950’s American rock ‘n’ roll, whilst keeping its lyrics rooted to the UK of today, telling a tale straight from the sleazy underbelly of a dirty London disco. The b-side ‘Judgement’ pushes the band’s energetic punk and country influences together in a new more melodic direction. The track was recorded at the iconic Sawmills Studios where Oasis recorded ‘Definitely Maybe’ and Muse recorded their first two EPs.

The release will be available to purchase as a download and also on limited edition cassette tape. Each cassette tape features art hand sprayed by Condors guitarist Matthew Edun and Emma Vo, the photographer behind the single’s cover art. The video for ‘Polka Dot Girl’ was created by Cambridge based experimental artist Karl Dmitri Bishop. To celebrate the release Burning Condors will be giving away posters designed by Karl Dmitri Bishop capturing scenes from the video – details to be announced via the band’s Twitter and Facebook pages.

These latest collaborations follow the Burning Condors’ ethos of working with exciting new photographers, artists and illustrators to bring new dimensions to their music.

Burning Condors’ ‘debut album ‘Round Our Way’ will be released on 9 September 2013. Recorded in Nashville the album features a performance by session legend Dave Roe (double bassist for Johnny Cash’s Tennessee Three), and Col JD Wilkes (Legendary Shack Shakers and Dirt Daubers).

Fresh on the Net described Burning Condors' debut single ‘Honey Trap’ as “...dirty in a good way...” whilst God is in the TV hailed “...a howling haunted victim of love no more”. Joyzine was equally impressed, describing Burning Condors' sound as using “...a modern art punk filter to come up with something fresh and new. Imagine Nick Cave sipping whiskey with John Spencer in a Hoxton dive bar.” ... more

Track Name: Polka Dot Girl
'Polka Dot Girl'

V1
She’s telling me it’s Primark
But I don’t mind at all
The way it hugs her sexy skin I tell the girl
“You’re gonna make me fall”

Oh because she’s my polka dot girl

V2
She likes to keep her shoes on
When we’re dancing slow
Smiling as she drops her dress
On ma-ma-my bedroom floor

Oh because she’s my polka dot, ma-my polka dot, ma-ma-my polka dot, she’s my polka dot girl

Middle 8
The dance floor’s packed from the front to the back
K-kiss me now baby and don’t look back
Your hands in mine, I kiss your breath, maybe your name
I will never ever forget

Go hit me guitar ow yeah

Solo

V3
Looking right into her eyes
She tells me I’m her one
Oh come on now girl, take a bow girl
Why d'ya have to go destroy what’s fun

Oh because she’s my polka dot girl

Go bleed your polka dots all over my face
Come bleed your polka dots all over my face
Just bleed your polka dots
Just bleed your polka dots
Come bleed your polka dot, pa-polka-dot pa-po-ow because she’s my polka dot, ma-my polka dot, ma-ma-my polka dot, she’s my polka dot girl
Track Name: Judgement
'Judgement'

Step up to the block
No childhood innocence to charm
Say you don’t believe in god
Unless the big mans coughing up
Diamonds and gold
He can’t judge your soul

I’ll make the judgement
I’ll make the judgement
I’ll make her crawl
I’ll make the judgement
I’ll make the judgement
She’s so warm against my load
But cold against my soul

She gives it all out on the dancefloor
She gives it all out on the dancefloor
She gives it all she’s gonna put it out

I’ll make the judgement
I’ll make the judgement
So warm against my load
Cold against my soul

She gives it all out on the dancefloor
She gives it all out on the dancefloor
A coin slot where her hearts cut out
She gives it all out on the dancefloor
She gives it all out on the dancefloor
She gives it all she’s gonna put it out

I’ll make the Judgement (I’ll make the Judgement)
I’ll make the Judgement (I’ll make the Judgement)
I’ll make the Judgement

She gives it all out on the dancefloor
She gives it all out on the dancefloor

She gives it all out on the dancefloor
Now she’s down on my bedroom floor

Coz she’s putting, out
