Sheffield’s RALE present their brand-new single ‘Party Music’, a post punk pop song that on the surface sounds simplistic, yet lyrically it deals with political figures exploiting fear and prejudice arising from inequality and segregation in society. Having received its first play by Huw Stephens on Radio 1 last week, ‘Party Music’ looks set to put RALE firmly on the map.
The video was filmed at a karaoke night in Walthamstow and features some rather interesting E17 locals. Check it out BELOW:
