Faintest Idea Nose Dive
UK Ska-Punk stalwarts Faintest Idea have released a brand new single ‘Nose Dive‘ taken from their forthcoming album, which will be release early 2023. Nose Dive is stream everywhere now – https://linktr.ee/faintestidea
Lyrically the song addresses trying to balance being politically active while having to hold down a full time job to keep your head above the water. Questioning whether you’re doing enough politically but also having no time to do any more.
Dani, Faintest Idea’s vocalist and bassist, says “it’s taken us a fair amount of time to finish this album in part due to us wanting to make sure we threw everything we had into it and making sure we made it all sound as big as possible. This was massively helped by the whole thing being mastered by the legendary Alan Douches (Against Me!, Bad Brains, Slackers)”.
With Faintest Idea’s album just around the corner they will be loads more announcements soon. But in the mean time catch them on tour with The Slackers next week;
26/9 – Hare & Hounds – Birmingham
27/9 – Retro – Manchester
28/9 – Parish – Huddersfield
29/9 – Kanteena – Lancaster
30/9 – Underworld – London
1/10 – Brudennel Social Club – Leeds
2/10 – Think Tank – Newcastle
3/10 – The Exchange – Bristol
If you don’t know Faintest Idea, they take the bouncing beat of 2 Tone Ska and smash it over the head with fast, angry UK Punk. Hailing from the East Anglian region of Britain the rabble rousing political lyrics are shouted over layers of catchy brass lines and heavy boot stomping beats.
Playing anywhere and everywhere from squats to bars to festival main stages and drawing inspiration from bands such as The Specials, The Filaments & Operation Ivy this is angry political commentary that you can shout along to while stomping your feet.
