BDRMM Ask You To Be Careful

Following the release of 2020’s widely-acclaimed debut LP Bedroom, and a clutch of hotly-received singles that’ve landed in the interim, February saw the Hull based shoegaze quartet bdrmm return with the news that they had signed to Mogwai’s Rock Action and that the revered independent label would release an anticipated second album I Don’t Know on 30th June. Like their debut, the album has been recorded with long-time band collaborator Alex Greaves (Working Men’s Club, Bo Ningen) at The Nave Studios in Leeds.

Following the album’s first release, It’s Just A Bit Of Blood, that saw significant press support in both the UK and US and made the playlist at BBC 6 Music only last week, today they return with a woozy new single in Be Careful. Wrapped in reverb and paired to a trip-hop shuffle, the band’s Ryan Smith had the following to say about the themes behind their latest track:

Be Careful was written during the pandemic (I said I’d never write the P word again, but for honesty’s sake). I had set up a little studio in the back of my garden and would often take myself there on evenings with numerous bottles of wine. Inspired by Portishead, and with a bassline that owes itself to Radiohead’s Nude, this track came about so naturally. It’s about taking care of yourself and realising when you need to change. I’ve been guilty of indulging too much and I definitely noticed myself becoming somebody I don’t like.  When realising that, it felt important. Trying to be a better person is hard when you don’t know you’re doing something wrong.”

Check out the Chris Tomsett-directed video for Be Careful below:

The band have announced plans for a string of in-store performances around the album, with tickets available by pre-ordering the album through the individual stores.
