We are very pleased to premiere the new single from Newcastle’s bright young indie punksters Liquid Zoo which is out for general release on Friday, 29 April 2022. Skating over a liquid ambulant bass, the track is classic rumbustious bop filled with an acerbic edge and fairground organ spritz. It’s pogoing punky pop brilliance with an insouciant swagger and sneering attitude. The singalong las and bubbly pop melodies rub up against irreverent language and pumping, driving rhythms to create something quite refreshing.
Think of an antipodean Supergrass with traces of post punk brashness like The Undertones.
The band says of the track:
The song is about coming to the realisation that your past actions were wrong and how that affects those around you and pondering the idea of not wanting to be yourself as a self-punishment. We wanted to present this melancholy idea in a happier contradictory light.
This is formidable stuff:
‘I Don’t Want To Be Me’ is out tomorrow through all the usual streaming and download sites and you can pre-save it here.
