Hull punks LIFE are pissed off and switched on with the brand new single from their debut album Popular Music.
An anthem of discontent and self-empowerment presented in characteristic punk style, “In Your Hands” is as rousing as it is rambunctious. Guitar lines squall and ricochet, with stomp-a-long rhythms surging forwards with a ceaseless momentum.
A tongue-in-cheek commentary run rampant, equal parts determination and distortion, the single blazes the with a freewheeling energy LIFE are synonymous with.
“Popular Music sounds like panic and anxiety,” Mez Sanders-Green says of the record. “It’s the sound of shitting it about whatever happens next week, about what you can weigh through on the self-checkout to get your beans cheaper. It’s an LP made up of the psyche of everyone who can see they’re getting fucked and there’s a lot of people getting fucked right now.”
