Glasgow’s Memes are having a good 2022. Finally getting to SXSW after last years disappointment plus two sets at The Great Escape they have now confirmed they will be supporting Madrid’s rock n’ roll duo The Parrots on their UK dates this month. Memes are racking up an impressive list of support slots including Joe and The Shitboys, Deep Tan, Benefits, Darwin Deez and even playing at the aftershow party for Fontaines D.C. gig in Antwerp in April. They also found time for their own headline European winter tour with sell-out dates.
The self-proclaimed laptop rock duo released their anti-anthem single ‘Second Thought‘ earlier this year, and have now announced their upcoming EP produced by Darwin Deez. ‘Second Thought‘ focuses on the dangerous thoughts we all have ticking away at the back of our minds and is coupled with a suitably erratic soundscape.
Expanding on the track John McLinden says:
“I’ve often wondered what people are really thinking when I talk to them. Behind the mask and the measured words. So, I started imagining these cartoon conversations where involuntary thought bubbles would appear above people’s heads as they spoke, betraying what they truly thought. That’s what gave birth to the song”.
Memes are cousins John and Paul McLinden. Formed in 2019 they bring a sardonic sense of fun to their interpretations of the world around us. They released their self-titled debut EP on Fierce Panda Records less than a year later.
