Following a six-year hiatus, duelling Yorkshire duo SKINT & DEMORALISED are back on the scene with a score to settle. Their forthright fourth album ‘We Are Humans’ presents a raw, political and poetic tour de force against the backdrop of Brexit Britain.

The snappy, sassy lead-off singles ‘Boro Kitchen 4am’ and ‘#RefugeesWelcome’ have received regular airplay on BBC Radio 6Music, but in the midst of the energetic observations about immigrants and inequality there is also intensely elegant pathos, epitomised by startling album closer ‘Superheroes’, the third single released on August 16th and available from here: https://orcd.co/skintanddemoralised_superheroes

A drastic departure from Skint & Demoralised’s original late ‘00s ditties detailing teenage love affairs and adolescent angst, ‘We Are Humans’ instead reflects the subsequent decade of desperate austerity, as well as the European refugee crisis just 22 miles from Britain’s shores. Frontman and spoken word artist Matt Abbott volunteered twice at the Calais Jungle in 2016 – either side of the EU referendum in which his native city voted 66% Leave.

Alongside Matt songwriter and producer David Gledhill, known more recently for his SOULS project, channels a raucous poet-punk energy, with sonic influences ranging from ‘Sandinista’ to The Strokes. Since Skint & Demoralised’s first Myspaceage outing, Abbott has established himself as a nationally acclaimed poet and likewise Gledhill as a producer – already the combination is curious. Add the searingly eloquent political commentary to the mix and it becomes an urgent and vital snapshot of these tumultuous times that engulf us, all wrapped up in fist-pumping, unapologetic and utterly essential alternative anthems. Come pump those fists of fury at this special ‘We Are Humans’ album launch party here:

Praise for Skint & Demoralised so far in 2019:

“Lyrical, raw and arguing with the insistence of its setting: politics and cheap lager at a party, when it’s time to go home but nobody’s got the time, not to think about that.” The State of Arts

“Lyrically cutting and insightful, it gets to the crux of the Brexit conundrum and its endless contradictions … After hearing ‘BK4AM’, the rule book on how to re-invent yourself as an anarchic and poetic force has been re-written.” Travellers Tunes

“Do it wrong and this sort of thing will turn people away, and singer Matt Abbott knows that. Do it right and it can really draw them in – in fact, one or two members of the front row are welling up. An unexpectedly emotional ride of much needed sincerity.” Brighton Source
