I Want That is the second single from Psapp’s new album, The Camel’s Back, and will be available via digital download on 30th March 2009.

This ode to instant gratification is about wanting something so badly it feels like your heart might burst and you have to have it regardless of the consequences… Combining their trademark wonky keyboards with squawking sax solos, Galia Durant’s surreal imagery and Carim Clasmann’s syncopated guitar wizardry makes it a perfect album opener, paving the way for a very exciting record indeed.

Parent album The Camel’s Back so far has received an enthusiastic reception from the Psapp faithful. It also led to live sessions with Mark Radcliffe and Radio 4’s Loose Ends (where they got to see Clive Anderson dance, but just a bit).

Psapp are currently rehearsing for shows in typically obtuse locations, including Bucharest and Singapore. They will be also be playing at Cargo on the 11th of March with support from Sam and The Plants.  Pop along and say hello. You can buy tickets for their Cargo show here:

I Want That will be available via digital download (RUG317D) and will feature an accompanying animation directed by the band and long time collaborator, Hauke Hilberg combining Psapp’s distinctive illustrations with a host of loutish marionettes.
