Art Brut sign to Alcopop! and unveil new single ‘Wham! Bang! Pow! Let’s Rock Out!’

After seven years away, Art Brut have made a welcome return with the enthusiastically titled ‘Wham! Bang! Pow! Let’s Rock Out!’. Now signed to Alcopop! Records, the song opens with Eddie Argos stating ‘I’m just looking for a party’ and it’s one you’ll want to be at. Amidst Gang of Four-esque guitar work, a chanty chorus of the title and punk-rock riffs, Eddie then goes on to recall those hazy memories of house parties that people fondly recall – even if they might be difficult at the time: ‘I’m just looking for a party’ opening statement. ‘We’ll make some enemies in the kitchen ’cause we don’t care whose booze we’re drinking’; ‘I want to wake up smelling like smoke under a pile of strangers coat’.

It then finishes with hushed and whispered admissions that captures the feeling of a return to the real world after a fine night: ‘I don’t want to go home yet, there’s still some people I haven’t met… ‘There’s a fire in my soul and I can’t put it out’

Art Brut will play a headline show at London’s Boston Music Room on 7 November.
