Theme Park have announced details of their new single. LA (Stealing My Friends) is the follow up to You Are Real, which was released in 2016 and gained support from the likes of Radio 1, 6 Music, Noisey, Clash, DIY amongst others.

Taken from their sophomore album, LA (Stealing My Friends) is a pop classic in the waiting about friends succumbing to the draw of cool La La Land with it’s surf, sea and Hollywood elite. The single was recorded as part of sessions produced both by Fryars and the band themselves in their own home studio.

Theme Park are three friends from London. Twin brothers Marcus and Miles, who met in the womb, and Oscar who entered their lives soon after at primary school. Chats during weekend tennis squads confirmed their growing love of music, and when miles and Marcus decided to form a band having finished university, it seemed only natural that Oscar would become the third member.

‘If you like Metronomy when Joe Mount was rocking a falsetto all day every day, and you dig Hot Chip‘s seminal 2006 video for Over and Over, then you will certainly enjoy the plinkety cool grooves of this London trio’ – Noisey

‘Rejoice, and perform rollercoaster-like loop the loops – Theme Park are back’ – DIY
