TUNE Shopping - Why Wait
Shopping release ‘Why Wait’ on 8th January via FatCat Records, the second single to be taken from new album ‘Why Choose’ (2nd October).
With their brilliant new album ‘Why Choose’, their debut for FatCat, Shopping teamed up with James Grier (Animal Collective, Japandroids) at Glasgow’s Green Door Studios. With 75% of the tracks clocking in at under 2 and a half minutes each (34 minutes in total), the album is lean and precise, powering forward on a relentlessly kinetic and infectious energy.
After an extensive North American tour in October and November, Shopping play the following UK dates: 100 Club London (8th Dec), Bumper Liverpool (10th Dec), Night & Day Manchester (11th Dec), The Crescent (12th Dec), Brudenell Social Club Leeds (13th Dec) and Sneaky Pete’s Edinburgh (16th Dec).
