The Polyphonic Spree have lanched their first single in four years as an interactive iPad app – scroll down and click below to hear a preview.
‘Bullseye’, which is available to download from the App Store now, is due to feature on the Texan band’s forthcoming as-yet-untitled new album.
Created with Moonbot Studios, the video allows fans to control a character named You-Me, who was based on a sketch by the band’s leader Tim DeLaughter. Viewers touch the app to make the character’s psychedelic world come alive.
The band have been involved in a wide range of projects since releasing their last album ‘The Fragile Army’ in 2007.
In the same year they were commissioned to write a song for US soccer team FC Dallas, titled ‘H-O-O-P-S Yes’.
In 2009, DeLaughter wrote the theme song for Steven Spielberg‘s US TV show United States Of Tara.
Later that year, the frontman composed and performed the score for a new DVD art project entitled Wee See.
