The optimistically energetic East Midlands duo The Tin Pigeons have firmly established their position in the indie-pop scene with hit singles such as Steel and Sirens, each of which have amassed over 300,000 plays on Spotify alone. In the band’s Covid-19 tenure they followed suit with their discography, choosing instead to release a steady flow of singles as opposed to any form of an EP, their first and only of which coming with their 2016 debut record Sparks. Their latest track Another Time is yet another prime example of the joyous, summery climate The Tin Pigeons have carved out for themselves over the past several years, and comes as part of a 2020 triumvirate of singles consisting also of Closer and Good Goodbye.
Despite its release last November, Another Time exhibits the warmth and bounciness of the perfect summer festival song. With the key motif laying in the notion of seeing in colour, this vibrant and uplifting track also uses heartfelt lyrics to explore the all-too-familiar feeling of when a relationship breaks down. Despite the bittersweet sincerity, the indie two-piece have perfected their own small remedy in delivering subtly feel-good tunes, aptly exemplified in Another Time, which possesses a repetitive and infectious chorus festival crowds will be sure to chant.
