The Old Pink House, Newcastle’s premier purveyors of cosmic pop are back, ready to pick up where they left off before the pandemic hit with their upcoming release Digital Romance. After initially starting life as a bedroom project founded by frontman Christopher Brown, the quartet have been on a steady ascent over the last few years, releasing a stream of quality singles and bagging prestigious support slots with the likes of Foals, Manic Street Preachers and The Cribs.

They consider the upcoming six-track EP to be a change of pace which, despite sharing some musical DNA with their previous releases, opts to go to more introspective, darker corners both musically and lyrically. The title track goes to task on the soulless monotony and subterfuge of online dating, and highlight The Crack is inspired by, in Brown’s words “a dead cheery dream” in which he died in a plane crash (not that you’d realise, given how much of a filthy banger it is).
