First We Take Dumbarton is the first track to surface from Faulty Inner Dialogue, the band's first new album since 2013. The song sees the band bringing additional electronic flourishes to their indie-pop sound, with David MacGregor's lyrics railing against media oversaturation and profit-before-people ideology – watch the video in the player above.

Faulty Inner Dialogue is Kid Canaveral's follow up to the "abundantly charming" Now That You Are A Dancer, which earned a spot on the longlist for the 2013 Scottish Album of the Year award (SAY Award). First We Take Dumbarton is out now on digital download and PostMap postcard single via Lost Map; Faulty Inner Dialogue is out on 29 July, with an album launch show at Summerhall in Edinburgh on 30 July.
