Riding the slipstream of their blistering Live at Leeds set last weekend, Get Inuit have dropped a new single.
The track, All My Friends, slips neatly into their ever-growing repertoire of sun-bleached pop hits with dark, humorous lyrics.
Like their bright white, peppy-designed merchandise tees with slogans like ‘We’re All Going to Hell’, All My Friends neatly weds the uplifting with the morose, making for a thoroughly tongue-in-cheek result.
At face value, the single, with its bright orange stripe and attractive block capitals, is friendly and inviting. Just ten seconds in, it’s clear this is not the case, as frontman Jamie Glass sings: “all my friends are dead.”
This theme of wasted youth continues, with self-confessed politico Jamie (who recently posted a comical video imploring fans to vote in the upcoming election) taking aim at contemporaries who “married young” and “bought a home via mortgage loan.”
Bright guitars, a consistent bass line and a drumbeat that begs for a teenaged mosh pit lift Glass’ cynical words on a saccharine cloud of pure indie pop.
The track premiered on Huw Stephens’ Radio 1 show this Bank Holiday Monday and is available to stream and purchase today.
Get Inuit play Dingwalls on May 25th.
