Track of the Day: NARCS – Bullingdon Boys

Leeds based indie alt-rock quartet NARCS return with their audacious and aggressively political new single ‘Bullingdon Boys’ which is our track of the day today.

If you’re as frustrated with the Tories and the Brexit campaign as we are, this might just help you blow off a bit of steam today.

A searing indictment of the political class that have somehow managed to hoodwink the general public into believing they have their best interests at heart, this is a slow builder which reaches a fraught crescendo, eventually crashing down in waves of hypnotic grunge riffs and driving, melodic alt-rock reminiscent of Cave In and Idlewild.

Speaking to Upset about the single Guitarist Joe says: “It’s pretty much aiming and firing on all targets at once. The title is obviously a giveaway but the misogyny, the greed, the cronyism and nepotism that we’re up to our necks in as a country – it can all be encapsulated in the sickening, perverse boys-only gang of Bullingdon scum.

“I wrote a lot of the lyrics separately from different incidents involving people I know and hold dear being treated like dirt by piece of shit misogynists, vulnerable people having their pittance taken by people who burn notes in front of homeless people for fun, press rats pushing lies to maintain their pathetic careers.

“But that’s what happens when we ‘elect’ vermin like the current lot. Burn middle England and everyone in it.”

The single comes ahead of the release of the bands second album ‘A Thinking Animal’, which is due out on Clue Records and a string of UK live dates and festival appearances.
