Bodega play the last of their May UK dates at the Lexington in London tonight, but they’ll be back in July for a fresh run.
Headlines shows have been arranged in Bristol, Brighton, Cardiff, Birkenhead, Manchester, Birmingham, London and Nottingham, with an appearances at Latitude in there too.
The band are close to the release of their debut album Endless Scroll, whose most recent single is Jack In Titanic. “Jack In Titanic is about learned male behavior and the nostalgia for it,” Ben Hozie has explained.
“One day I realized that my unspoken internal values ‘of what it means to be a man’ were inherited from the dubious fantasy of the movies, particularly my childhood models: James Bond, Jackie Chan, and Jack (in Titanic).”
“Jack, of course, is also an archetypal rock and roll hero: road warrior, poor yet able to maneuver class, loyal friend, incredible dancer, fantastic lover (in the back of cars), wonderful with graphic design (could do his own cover art), and weapon against the aristocracy (and all things bureaucratic and mannered).”
