Picnic – We’ve Only Just Begun
1 Star 4

We welcome another new international addition to the Shelflife family, Picnic, who are one of Estonia’s brightest groups. To celebrate the occasion, the band recorded this special limited edition 7″ featuring their take on two of the most beautiful pieces of music ever written — “We’ve Only Just Begun” by Roger Nichols and Paul Williams and “Say a Little Prayer” by Burt Bacharach and Hal David.

Picnic formed in 2006 by Marju Taukar, Andres Soosaar and Rivo Jaervsoo. Marju and Andres were previously in 90s indie band Dreamphish and Rivo is a current member of Seksound labelmates Bad Apples. Picnic released their debut album Winter Honey in 2010 and have been steadily working on their follow-up to be released later this year. They are clearly influenced by classic shoegaze and dreampop and while there is something vastly familar about their sound, it never feels overly nostalgic in any way. They add their own soaring signatures with unconventional instrumention and modern uses of electronics, all while standing firmly grounded to pure pop structure and melody.

We’ve Only Just Begun is limited to 100 copies in the US and is a co-release with Seksound in Estonia. Coming May 29.
