Italian psych-garage heroes Bee Bee Sea return with new single ‘Time and Time‘ and a full UK Tour in the Spring.
‘Time and Time’ is an introspective song about the inescapable passing of time. Cynical and nostalgic, yet powerful, the track is loosely inspired by Richard Hell and the Voidoids’ song ‘Time’, from which the verse “only time can write a song that’s really real” is taken.
Musically, ‘Time and Time’ represents something of a departure from the sound of their latest record, 2020’s ‘Day Ripper’, falling somewhere between Black Rebel Motorcycle Club and The Stooges and enhanced by the addition of the electric piano played by Marco Giudici, who also produced the track.
Bee Bee Sea have already confirmed many live dates over the Spring and Summer, that will touch Spain, Italy and the UK, with more to be announced soon.
