The Warrington based band Man & The Echo are back with ‘I Don’t Give A Fuck What You Reckon’, another sharp and witty lyric, this time taking aim at modern society in the digital age. It was produced by the band themselves and mixed by Neil Comber (Django Django / MIA). Watch the video BELOW:
“I don’t give a fuck what you reckon isn’t an angry song, it’s an exasperated one,” explains front man Gaz Roberts. “And it’s not angrily exasperated, but bemusedly so. No aggression or violence is meant towards you for sharing your inane opinions, your photographs of your mediocre dinners, the fact that you have read something, or how funny you think your kid is. I just want to extend to you a message, that when you decide to share something to feed your own narcissism, to cultivate an idealised perception of yourself, or because you saw something and immediately formed a half baked opinion that you are absolutely certain of, I don’t give a fuck. Consider this song my eternal status. And enjoy your cocktail.”
Man & The Echo signed to legendary A&R man James Endeacott’s rejuvenated 1965 label last year. Their last single ‘All Right’ – a tale of kidnap, set in a fascist rural village – was championed by 6Music’s Steve Lamacq. It was released in June ahead of dates at Glastonbury – an invitation from Billy Bragg – and the Isle of Wight Festival.
The band is back in the studio recording their debut album, due for release in 2016.
Man & The Echo are Gaz Roberts, Joe Forshaw, Joey Bennett and Chris Gallagher.
