LIFE – Bum Hour

MM faves and mighty Hull outfit LIFE have shared a new single from their forthcoming album A Picture Of Good Health. It is the wonderfully entitled Bum Hour.

They say “Bum Hour is the isolation when you shut your door. Bum Hour is about not being at ease on your own. Bum Hour is ‘that’ pattern and routine broken. It’s the need to live again in that moment as you watch the bars buzz from your lone-parent window. Your only comfort, your saviour, your little boy in his bedroom. You find yourself scrolling through your phone an act of self-harm and torture. Your mates are out – you lie down and sleep.”

Listen and love its queasily anthemic magnificence. Lots of live UK dates too.
