Birmingham based indie outfit WURLITZER are set to release their new single ‘And The Bonus Ball Is’’ across all digital platforms on 27th January with digital distribution via CD Baby. Radio Impact/Focus Date is slated for 17th February 2023.
With an admirable passion for all things joyful and fun, Birmingham based ensemble WURLITZER are set on lifting your mood. As much a creative collective as an indie band, Wurlitzer have a flair for a unique melody and an infectious beat. Featuring as few as six and as many as ten members, Wurlitzer’s sure-fire indie floor fillers are certain to be stuck in your head for the foreseeable future. Wurlitzer offers a skip-full of sugary melodies and obscure lyrics that make the unimportant and mundane sacrosanct; they are well placed to fill your brain with earworms. Not scared to stray away from standard guitar based rock music; the band often incorporates a bunch of instruments in each song including glockenspiels, trumpets, flutes and stylophones amongst others.
When speaking about the track WURLITZER said “This track is about weekend millionaires, living beyond your means and spending money on extravagant things without knowing where the money is coming from. We kind of wanted to write a song loosely based around the quote - “socialism never took root in America because the poor see themselves not as an exploited proletariat but as temporarily embarrassed millionaires.” - so the lyrics take inspiration from that quote and we kind of tie that to the idea that certain people often live like future lottery winners with hope of one day winning the lottery even though the chances are very slim.”
