Fresh from announcing a 2021 UK tour, Sleaford Mods release new single ‘Nudge It’ (ft Amy Taylor from Amyl and the Sniffers). The single comes ahead of the January 15th release of their highly-anticipated 6th studio album ‘Spare Ribs’.
Of the new single, the band’s Jason Williamson says “Imagine you’ve got limited options, unsure how you’re getting by that week, looking out the window of the damp flat you don’t want to live in, and seeing a bunch of posers having a photoshoot because ‘cool architecture bro, we feel your pain’.
The reduced circumstance isn’t a pantomime. If you haven’t lived within its confines don’t use it to enamour your ideas. It confuses the platform for those that truly live it and more often than not buries creative breakthroughs because the arena is polluted by the view of their world through someone else’s privileged lens. So beware the eager networkers, don’t settle for the 20p pay-out, nudge it, pop the posers. And don’t apologise for the fucker either.”
‘Nudge It’ partners Williamson’s trademark lyrical wit with the energetic and unmistakable vocals of Amy Taylor from Australian punk-rock band ‘Amyl and the Sniffers’. The polemical Williamson and dexterous producer Andrew Fearn kick against the pricks with unrivalled bite, railing against hypocrisy, inequality and apathy with their inimitable, scabrous sense of humour.
