With their debut album How Would You Know I Was Lonely? set to come out next month, The Rhythm Method are blessing us with a brand new bop, “Wandsworth Plain”. Their second single from the album, the latest number from the duo – made up of Joey Bradbury and Rowan Martin – sees them blending jaunty piano and music hall-esque vibes with their signature bittersweet lyricism. This time, they’ve also enlisted legendary Squeeze singer-songwriter Chris Difford to jump on the chorus too.
“‘Wandsworth Plain’ is a kind of mini-epic, set over many years,” the pair say. “It’s a kitchen sink drama, set in South London, almost a spiritual update of ‘Up The Junction’. A song that incorporates a lot of our collective influences; Small Faces, The Kinks, Pulp and of course Squeeze. When we found out Chris Difford was a fan, we couldn’t not get him involved.”
Join pair to celebrate at their album release show on 4 July at London’s Bush Hall.
