Really Good Time release a sordid new guitar track with a compelling riff- just weeks ahead of their newly announced UK dates
After releasing their Lamacq roundtable approved debut EP Escape from the Mountain of Spit, and closing 2023 with tours supporting The Murder Capital and The Scratch, Really Good Time return in 2024 with their shiny new single ‘Retreat to the Cubicle’.
The new track is a sleazy guitar anthem, full of the partying induced nausea that inspired 'Retreat to the Cubicle's inception.
The tune has been described as "born in a moment of divine inspiration", when lead singer Diol was locked in a bathroom at a party, teetering on the edge of illness and hallucination after eating too much candy-floss.
Lying on the bathroom floor with the sound of music and laughter muted and faraway through the tiled walls, a guitar riff suddenly appeared and stuck in his mind. Days later, that riff was still there, turning around and around.
The creative process was one born of the legendary 'fear' with the band saying that as the riff mingled with the loose shame of having locked himself in that house party’s sole bathroom for several hours, a song began to solidify around it.
'Retreat to the Cubicle' exudes a a grotesque sensuality that tempered by unapologetic psychedelic sesh head energy. An early 2000s style music video is set to accompany the new track on February 15th in what Really Good Time have dubbed "Valentine's 2.0".
Today's new single is also accompanied with a UK Tour announcement which will see the Dublin band take on the likes of Brighton, London, Sheffield and Glasgow this April.
