Shopping announce second album

WHY CHOOSE will be released this October

The follow-up to Shopping’s debut album, 2013’s Consumer Complaints, will be released 2 October on FatCat Records.

The East London-formed trio’s WHY CHOOSE is a lean 34 minutes and draws inspiration from bands like ESG, Delta 5 and Gang of Four.

The band say of the new album: “We wanted WHY CHOOSE to have the same feel as our first album but with an even sharper edge. Our main focus was still to have fun and write some songs that would get people dancing but there is also a darker undertone to this record – mostly we are singing about rejection, frustration, fighting, fleeting relationships, wasting time and losing money but there is also a kind of wildness and fun – a liberated freak out of a shopping spree that we really hope people can identify with.”
