Leeds-based six-piece Team Picture formed in 2016 and have already received critical acclaim from Radio One, BBC Introducing and 6Music. Their new gritty single ‘(I Want Your) Life Hack’ delves into post-punk sounds, contrasting to ‘(I Have a) Little Secret’ released earlier in the year. This release runs concurrently with the announcement of their 7-track mini album Recital, produced by Matt Peel, set to be released in June. ‘(I Want Your) Life Hack’ is accompanied by a DIY video consisting of distorted colourful imagery. Team Picture will be playing a full UK tour in May and June, including festival dates at The Great Escape and Liverpool Sound City, and a headline show at London’s The Shacklewell Arms.

Guitarist Josh on the song: “This is a Talking Heads song from an alternate dimension, performed by a bizarro-world version of the band, who have half the talent, twice the fuzz pedals, and are fronted by David Byrne’s fictional idiot brother Malcolm.”
