BEST BETS' NEW SINGLE: OLYMPIC SPRINTER

News

The news is written by a mysterious person. Maybe Wendy Broccoli.


Best Bets have dropped the third single from their upcoming album. Check out Olympic Sprinter here:

The album, named On An Unhistoric Night, comes out on March 18th via Meritorio Records (US/EU/UK) and Melted Ice Cream (ROW). To describe this album, it's best leave it to the band themselves:

"Perhaps this album could be described as a series of homages; a bunch of ballads, some tearjerkers, with a few earworms thrown in. ‘On An Unhistoric Night’ talks about New Jack Swing artists who were formerly Olympic athletes; 11th century monarchs; Italian sports cars (and car salesmen); Open Polytechnic ads of the late 90s; Whose Line is it Anyway?; Subbuteo champions and Elvis impersonators. It explores hubris, hopelessness and purpose in life, pop culture detritus and everyday ennui underpinned by humour, guitar heroics and catchy bloody hooks."

On An Unhistoric Night is available for pre-order via the Best Bets bandcamp page.
