Duo Virginia Wing announce new album due out in June

Virginia Wing have announced details of a new album, entitled Ecstatic Arrow, and above, you can check out the lead track, 'The Second Shift', exclusively via tQ.

Ecstatic Arrow was recorded by the duo in Switzerland at the home of longtime friend and collaborator Misha Hering, with the pair submitting themselves to the "domesticity and gentle routine of communal life" through the process.

'The Second Shift' is carried along as ever by Alice Merida Richards' vocals sitting alongside a collection of brass instruments and synths. Ecstatic Arrow is due for release via Fire Records on June 8. You can pre-order it here.

The duo will play this year's Sea Change festival in Totnes on August 25, and will also play alongside Hookworms on a selection of UK dates this month at Glasgow's The Art School (March 17), The Cluny in Newcastle (March 18), London's Brixton Electric (March 24) and the Picture House Social in Sheffield (March 25).
