Aaron Fletcher and Tim Parkin from The Bees announce new project 77:78
77:78, a new project from Aaron Fletcher & Tim Parkin of the band The Bees have announced details of the release of their debut album, Jellies.
To Coincide the band have shared 'Love Said (Let's Go)', the first taster from the record. It comes after the track was previously available as a limited edition seven inch vinyl, which sold out within 48-hours and was the catalyst for their now label Heavenly Recordings, who signed the band upon first hearing the track.
Listen to the track, below:
The video was animated video by Sam Wisternoff, who spoke on the video:
Ever since we first saw John Slade's designs for parties at The Social we wanted him to be involved with 77:78. His artwork makes you think 'why' and wtf!? It's hugely vibrant and it hits a certain silly nail on the head every time. He got what we were after with the band and he didn't fail once to deliver the goods. Originally at the beginning of the brief we gave him, he made a handful of magical giffs that had us all mesmerised. We were then lucky (again) to stumble over Sam Wisternoff who grabbed all the elements and designs John had created and brushed us a solid graphical vid together for Love Said ( Let's Go)! There's teasers to the main artwork included, peace love be silly get the jellies in.
The track listing of the 10-track album, which is released on Heavenly Recordings on Friday 6th July 2018, is as follows:
