HEY! HELLO! to release their debut album through The End Records (US - July 23rd), Round Records (Europe - July 22nd) and Vinyl Junkie (Japan - Out Now)
Okay, here is the scoop: They made something. Oh my matching arms and legs, did they ever make something!! Here is the best part: they made it for YOU.
Who is "they" you ask?? Well, obviously "they" is the excessively sweet-smelling, ambitiously color coordinating, nonsense generating, imagination capturing, imagination releasing followed by immediate imagination recapturing, guitar noise purveying transatlantic pop/rock duo answering to the name- Hey! Hello!.
Hey! Hello! is US vocalist Victoria Liedtke and UK multi-instrumentalist Ginger Wildheart (The Wildhearts) and they are set to release their self-titled debut album in the UK & Europe on Round Record Records on July 22nd, 2013.
The ten song opus, produced by Russ Russell, is the sonic equivalent of having your stomach pumped with liquid joy and features songs including album opener “Black Valentine”, “Feral Days”, "How I Survived The Punk Wars" and the feel-good-hit-of-the-summer, lead single “Swimwear”.
Ginger says: “Hey! Hello! allowed me to enter the world of lyrical fiction – much in the vein of Sparks, who are a massive influence on Victoria and I.”
