The Lovely Eggs release new single “Long Stem Carnations” and announce UK dates

 

The Lovely Eggs have just released a brand new single via Egg Records. “Long Stem Carnations”, taken from their number one selling album I am Moron, is released on limited-edition coloured 7″ vinyl and backed by brand new B side ‘The Voyage’. “Long Stem Carnations” was inspired by the Mars One programme, a global project which aims to establish a permanent human settlement on Mars. The band drew parallels between this mission and their own isolation as a band. They used lockdown time to handmake their own claymation video for the single. Holly explains: “We love claymation and had done a bit of it in some of our previous videos, so we wanted to do something with animation. We forgot though that it just takes SO fucking long. And we had no idea it was going to turn out how it did. We started by doing some animation bits and then David got the idea to have our heads but animated versions. So, we made a plasticine mask to cover my face. We modelled it on the cut off head of a dummy and then transferred it to my face. It looked so freaky it was unreal and right there and then we knew the video was gunna take a drastic turn and we just followed it! We then decided that it would be a cool idea if I WAS the cut off dummy, cos the song is all about being cut off and isolation, so it was a perfect fit thematically. “
