Tijuana Bibles have announced their debut album Free Milk, due for release on 3rd September 2021 via 7 West Music.
To celebrate, the post-punk quartet have released a video for their new single Human Touch.
“Human Touch is about being disengaged from myself and others. I was sitting on the bus home through Glasgow, listening to a phone recording of a song we were working on earlier that week, which would become Human Touch. Looking out the window, people watching, I scribbled down the lyrics and quietly sang the melody into my phone,” explains vocalist/guitarist Tony Costello.
“That day it almost felt like I had been standing on a travelator, passing through all the fuzz and white noise of the city, before coming out the other side without noticing. It was just as lockdown came in and probably written from an anxious vantage point – heightened and dramatised lyrically – but as the year unfolded, it became true to life.
“From the gutter, to the highest skyscrapers of our imagination, through the pounding noise of dystopian Britain, swimming in subconscious, displaced memories, in a life fragmented – all roads lead back to the human condition. Everything we do has a propulsive energy, ‘momentum’ was our mantra in the studio. We want the album to be transportive, we want you to lose yourself and come out the other side feeling different in some way.”
