UK dreampop cult group Panchiko have shared the ethereal title track from Failed at Math(s), their first new album in 20 years. Say the group: “‘Failed at Math(s)’ is a song about how the precursor to realising a vaguely acceptable, if still somewhat disappointing end result, is acknowledging and casting off the patterns that lead us to fail over and over (and over) again.”

"Highly specialised conditions were cultivated in order to emulate the writing process of 20 years ago," the band add. "Sat on the sofa. Surrounded by snacks. Games consoles and music machines were sampled, lyrics mumbled and 3 chord progressions were strummed over drum loops and blips and bloops." Watch the "Failed at Math(s)" video, staring an ant and a potato chip, below.

Failed at Math(s) will be out May 5 and the band will be on tour this spring. They've added a few more dates, including a second night at NYC's Le Poisson Rouge on May 31. (The 5/30 LPR show is sold out.) All tour dates, which are with Horse Jumper of Love, and LSD and the Search for God are listed below.
