Scottish Fiction are delighted to present 'slow tv', the latest single from Glasgow five-piece wojtek the bear. 'slow tv' is the third of four singles being released by wojtek the bear during 2019, all of which will be collected on a limited edition 12” vinyl, 'old names for new shapes', in November 2019.

As with their last two singles, 'slow tv' was once again recorded with acclaimed producer Jamie Savage at Chem19 Studios [The Twilight Sad, Miaoux Miaoux, The Phantom Band, RM Hubbert]. With 'slow tv', wojtek the bear chart a course through upbeat pop melodies, driven by a C86 influenced guitar line and a chorus hook so infectious it should come with a World Health Organisation warning. In true Scottish fashion however, the uplifting music is juxtaposed with a somewhat morose underbelly.

The song was inspired, as many are, by past relationships, especially those ones where at their close you no longer have any connection to the other person. Lead singer, and chief songwriter Tam Killean explains, "I guess the track is a rumination on the total opposite ends of the spectrum you can end up at with people you’ve been in relationships with. There are people i’ve been with before who at the time are your entire world, yet now if they got wiped out by the 267 bus to Possilpark I’d probably only find out about it if it was in the Evening Times the next day ."

'slow tv' will be released digitally on all platforms on 13th September 2019 via Scottish Fiction.
