‘Thank You’ is the latest release from the Cardiff-based band, My Name is Ian . The track is set to be released on May 12th and is a tribute to the people who have supported them over the years, drug smuggling, Stephen Mulhern and falling in love.
‘Thank You’, is the first track from the band’s upcoming 8th studio album: ‘ GO BANANAS GO BANANAS GO BANANAS GO BANANAS GO BANANAS’ . The record will be full of the trademark blend of catchy pop melodies, witty lyrics, and infectious energy. Songs about hating your life, loving your life, Norwegian families, coconut crabs, 90s television shows, feeling like a loser, not trusting the government and Peppa pig. There is something for everyone.
Creatures of Cardiff, My Name Is Ian have already built a back catalogue that would have taken The Stone Roses millennia to mirror. Since 2010 their output of has dealt with break-ups, breakdowns, mysterious lion paintings and characters from the Tom Hanks movie Big. This restless productivity has seen genres including but not restricted to lo-fi, bedroom punk, garage rock, prog and anti-folk, all filtered through the pop-oriented cranium of frontman Reginald Foxwell.
Impressively prolific and prolifically impressive, bittersweet but unbroken, My Name Is Ian require your immediate attention.
