Today, Brighton’s Egyptian Blue announce details of their debut album, titled A Living Commodity, set for release on October 27th via YALA! Records. Accompanying the album’s announcement, the band have also shared its lead single, Skin.

Inspired by a tale of a surgeon with a twitch, the band state of the single:

’Skin’ was a demo I wrote on my balcony on a hot summer’s day. I became completely infatuated with the shakers, insisting that this is a shaker song and the rest is background noise. It’s a simple song and kind of structurally unorthodox. But again as many EB songs have the tendency to complicate simple ideas, ‘Skin’ certainly wasn’t an exception. I see wide-open spaces snapping into a tight and clean portrait and back and forth between them. It toys with the idea of being ok then not ok and pining to wear another’s ‘Skin’ in the climate of discontent in yourself and your situations.

Since their formation after Andy Buss and Leigh Ambrose bonded over early Foals and The Maccabees, the band have ridden high on a wave of hype – supporting the likes of The Murder Capital and an unforgettable set at London’s All Points East. 

To celebrate the release of their debut album, Egyptian Blue will be heading out on an extensive tour this November – including a show at London’s iconic The 100 Club.  Tickets are available here.*
