New single and Old Blue Last gig

5056005012338My Name Will Be a Myth is the next single taken from album Radio Love, and will be released on Friday July 29th.

Another fine example of Player Piano’s unique blend of piano and indie rock; The Sunday Times likened it to Arcade Fire.

Player Piano also played another fantastic set at Old Blue Last on Saturday evening, co-headlining with The Pictish Trail. Another audience left wowed by the closing surprise virtuoso saxophone solo!

Kings & Queens featured on PromoNews

Renowned industry blog PromoNews has featured TJ Reynolds‘ stunning video on its site and newsletter which showcases the best in music promos.

TJ Reynolds’ entirely hand-drawn video took 1 year and 6000 pieces of chalk to make

PromoNews said of the film:

The huge, gorgeous and colourful artworks depict fish morphing into dragons, knights becoming kings before melting away and otherworldly landscapes being built from a human face. It’s an enormous achievement which TJ Reynolds says has left him with “permanently stained hands”. It’s not surprising.

You can watch this amazing feat of craftsmanship here.

Kings & Queens premiered by Clash Music

Clash Magazine have premiered the outstanding video for Kings & Queens, making it their track of the day. It’s fair to say they like it:

New album ‘Radio Love’ drops on July 1st, with Clash able to premiere the supremely intelligent funk-pop banger ‘Kings & Queens’.

Rooted in that chugging, Talking Heads style bass, the choppy guitars and laid back rhythm recall Metronomy’s more direct moments. The whole package, though, sounds utterly Player Piano.

Watch the video, constructed from more than 6000 chalk drawings over 12 months by artist TJ Reynolds, over at Clash now.
