|'Staging' is the second single to be taken from Cornershops recent and universally acclaimed album Handcream For A Generation. |
'Staging The Plaguing Of The Raised Platform' - to give the song its album-length title - is a perfect example of the offhand charm that Handcream... as a whole exudes, bringing together music box chimes, boogie guitar, and the disarming presence of a childrens choir, before capping the whole thing off with deliciously swirling strings.
The single will be available on 3 formats, all of which include new Cornershop material:
7 Staging (Radio Edit) Green Ps
'Staging' is released on Monday 12th August by Wiiija Records.
Cornershop will be performing at a number of festivals over the summer:
