The Subways are back! Welwyn Garden City’s finest return with a special one off summer single ‘My Heart Is Pumping to a Brand New Beat’ on June 23rd, via the bands own label YFE (Young For Eternity) Records and a newly penned services deal with Cooking Vinyl.
Written, produced and mixed by the band’s singer Billy Lunn, the single will be released to mark 10 years since they won the Glastonbury Emerging Talent Competition as an unsigned act, all aged just 17.
The new logo and single artwork has been designed by a Hungarian fan, whom the band contacted via Facebook, after she posted some of her striking work on their page. The band loved the results so much they have now asked her to design their next album cover.
Having recently broken new ground by playing South Africa & Russia, their first UK show for almost a year saw a packed out performance at The Great Escape Festival, headlining Concorde 2 on the Saturday night. Alongside Glastonbury, they have a main stage slot at this year's Hurricane & Southside Festivals in Germany and are set to headline Camden Rocks Festival in London.
They are currently residing in Brussels writing songs for what will be their 4th album.
Billy Lunn on ‘My Heart Is Pumping to a Brand New Beat’: “I wrote this track after I recently resolved a difficulty in my life as I was surrounded by the pulsing beats of my favourite songs and a throng of complete strangers crashing around the dance floor. Music has a wonderful power to heal wounds.”
