It's summer and the weather is shite. What better way to descend into July gloom than embracing the stoned, downer folk of Bat-Bike's Trapped in the Net. A b-side that nearly disappeared into the ether, the track was recorded during the sessions that led to the South London garage band's Getting Back album - now it's getting the attention it deserves with a beautiful video shot on a heat sensitive camera. A departure from their more ramshackle punk, this is possibly our favourite release from the band, and points to a depth that bodes well for the album -
FACT FANS! Josh from the band has told us that "the trumpet in the track is a friend of mine Jake Stoddart from the band dont problem- we used to be in a duo called Shrink Rat together before bat-bike..." We think the trumpet sounds great. More trumpet!
The full Bat-Bike album is gonna be available on their Bandcamp - check it out over here
