Montreal’s Pottery return today with Hot Like Jungle, the third single lifted from their much-anticipated debut album Welcome To Bobby’s Motel. It now arrives June 26th via Partisan Records.
Hot Like Jungle comes accompanied by an animated video created by Pottery drummer Paul Jacobs.
Speaking on the song’s inspiration, the band says: “This was written as a love song for Paul’s girlfriend. He had a job working construction one summer and came up with the lyrics almost as a sort of Springsteen parody, they’re very blue-collar. When Austin sings it we always picture him on a mountain shouting off into the distance with a girl out there singing back to him.”
Behind their acclaimed debut EP, No. 1, last year, Pottery toured with Parquet Courts, Thee Oh Sees and Fontaines D.C.; played festivals including Green Man, End of the Road, SXSW, The Great Escape and Iceland Airwaves.
Speaking of which, the band are pleased to announce a bunch of rescheduled dates for later this year across the UK, Europe and North America. Please see further below for the UK touring itinerary and keep your eyes peeled for more news in the coming weeks. They will perform at the Brudenell Social Club in Leeds on September 11th 2020.
