Conchúr White has kicked off 2020 with the release of a brand new single, ‘Bikini Crops’. Mixed by Matt Wiggins (London Grammar, Glass Animals, Horrors), Bikini Crops is available everywhere from today via Panoplea/Believe. The video for Bikini Crops has been beautifully animated by Brighton based director Tom Denney.

The new single follows the release of Conchúr’s debut tracks ‘Daisies’ & ‘Channing Tatum’ at the close of 2019. Those releases coincided with a run of tour dates supporting Villagers and today’s new single pre-empts festival appearances for Conchúr White at Eastbound & The Great Escape.
Speaking about ‘Bikini Crops’, Conchúr shares: “Bikini Crops is quite a simple song. It’s about the moment in a new relationship when you realise that you love that person and you reflect on how you have improved since meeting them. The distractions and tempta-tions that were previously enticing seem to have less of a draw”
Indicative of his raconteur nature, Conchúr (pronounced Conor)’s lyrical influences include the likes of Father John Misty, Lana Del Rey, Alex Turner, and Charles Bukowski. There’s a dream-like surrealism in White’s musical storytelling which he delivers with understated theatrical manner.
