Super Furry Animals writing song for kids’ TV show ‘Yo Gabba Gabba!’

Welsh band to provide music for US series

Super Furry Animals are writing a song set to be aired on US childrens’ TV show ‘Yo Gabba Gabba!’.

The Welsh band revealed that the tune was in the pipeline – although did not say whether they would appear in person on the show, as bands including MGMT and The Ting Tings (see video below for their performance) have.

“We’re recording a song for ‘Yo Gabba Gabba!’, the crazy kids TV show at the moment,” frontman Gruff Rhys told BBC News.

Elaborating on how he got in the zone to write the song, he added: “You drink lots of additives. You go to the shop and buy everything that’s coloured orange or red and because you’re grown up, you have to drink 50 times the amount a kid would need to go mental.

“Then you just play at hyper-speed and jump around and stuff.”
