Glasgow science punks WE ARE THE PHYSICS unleashed brand new single “Goran Ivanisevic”. It’s the first taster of their forthcoming second album.
Here’s the official word:
Goran Ivanisevic. That’s tennis ace, Goran Ivanisevic. Winner of Wimbledon 2001, despite qualifying only as a wild card. Tennis ace. Goran. Ivanisevic.
We Are The Physics return with brand new single, ‘Goran Ivanisevic’.
The track is a paean to the eccentric Croatian tennis superstar, and serves as the first taster of the Glasgow quartet’s forthcoming second album.
Michael M explains: “We know zero about tennis, but Goran has always been one of our heroes just because of the sheer determination he had, having lost the title several times and the fact he claimed at every match he was playing against five different opponents, one of which was himself. And also the ball boys. After losing a title he said he was going to kill himself, then after beating Tim Henman he claimed he was genius. Just that furious drive and refusal to quit in the face of worldwide sneering, we’ve always thought was equally admirable and terrifying”.
The follow-up to debut ‘We Are The Physics Are OK At Music’ will be released later this year. It was recorded in Glasgow with Gang Of Four’s Thomas McNeice.
