Norway's premier Indie-Rock band Beezewax have shared a brand-new single 'Rainbows'.
This new single comes with a trio of announcements - plans for a new album, their first since 2014's 'Tomorrow', headlining dates around the UK this summer and a leg of shows supporting American alternative rock stalwarts BUFFALO TOM in Europe this November.
Commenting on the track guitarist/vocalist, Kenneth Ishak explained: "When we recorded our old album 'Oh Tahoe' with Pelle Gunnerfeldt he would always say that 'Marquee Moon' by Television was the best album ever, and it took us some time to understand that he was right. This song is pretty influenced by that album"
With a heavy touring schedule including festival appearances at the likes of Primavera Sound (ES), Twisterella (UK), Out of Spite (UK) and Donostikluba Festival (ES) as well as club tours in the UK, Japan, Spain and Norway, over the past few decades, Beezewax have cemented themselves internationally as a formidable live presence. Critically the band has also drawn in praise from the likes of Q Magazine, The 405, Magnet, The Line of Best Fit and more.
This year Beezewax will release a new album produced by lead singer, guitarist and songwriter Kenneth Ishak. A process which has in no small part been influenced by the touring the band has done the last few years with words like 'energy' and 'harmonics' playing key roles in the aesthetic of the album.
"We wanted to capture the vibe of the band playing live together in a big room with guitars bleeding into each other as they would on a live show, and collectively creating the energy of the songs" said Kenneth.
