77:78 is the new project of Aaron Fletcher and Tim Parkin, who were both formerly in the British psych-rock band The Bees (or A Band of Bees, as they were alas legally forced to be renamed in America). Their debut album, Jellies, is due out July 6 via Heavenly. Previously they shared a video for "Love Said (Let's Go)." Now they have shared another song from the album, "Chilli." Listen below.

Fletcher was a founding member of The Bees, which released four albums, most memorably 2002's Mercury Prize-nominated debut album Sunshine Hit Me and 2004's sophomore album Free the Bees. The Bees haven't released an album since 2010's Every Step's a Yes and are either on extended hiatus or broken up. Hence we now have 77:78.

Fletcher had this to say about "Chilli" in a press release: "'Chilli' is just us being the sort of '70s dirty ol' roadhouse blues band that we always wanted to be....dressed in double denim and playing in a desert bar where the chilli is hot as rockets."

Fletcher also had this to say about the album in a previous press release: "There's an absolute joy to this and we really want to capitalize on that. We're more happy than we've have ever been and we want people to see that there's a lot of fun here. 77:78 is a beautiful vehicle and me and Tim want to give it a roll and see what happens."
