Piroshka Announce New LP 'Love Drips And Gathers', Stream “Scratching At The Lid"

London supergroup Piroshka (made up of members from Lush, Elastica, Moose and Modern English) have announced the release of their second studio album 'Love Drips And Gathers'.

The record – named after a line in a Dylan Thomas poem – is the follow-up to their 2019's debut Brickbat, and was inspired by love, family, belonging, memory. It will be out on July 23 via Bella Union. Pre-order your copy here.

The four band members are former Lush vocalist/guitarist (and former redhead) Miki Berenyi, former Moose guitarist KJ "Moose" McKillop, Modern English bassist Mick Conroy and former Elastica drummer Justin Welch. 

Love Drips And Gathers follows a more introspective line – the ties that bind us, as lovers, parents, children, friends – to a suitably subtler, more ethereal sound, whilst still revelling in energy and drama.

“If Brickbat was our Britpop album, then Love Drips And Gathers is shoegaze!” reckons vocalist/guitarist Miki Berenyi, formerly of Lush, a band that effortlessly bridged the two genres like no other. “It wasn’t intentional; we just wanted a different focus. I’ve always seen debut albums as capturing a band’s first moments, when you really have momentum, and then the second album is the chance for a more thoughtful approach.”

Bassist Mick Conroy (Modern English) agrees. “Brickbat was a classic first album; noisy and raucous. On Love Drips And Gathers, we’ve calmed down and explored sounds, and space.”

The way Love Drips And Gathers changes shape and dynamic is less a reprise of nineties Brit indie than a transformation into a more shivery, Euro-mantic version with glistening electronic filigrees.

The  band have also shared their new single “Scratching At The Lid”, take a listen below the album's tracklist.
