Bad Sounds have returned with a new single, ‘Nu Me Nu Yu’ – or ‘Knew Me Knew You’, but “spelled stupid”.
It is the British alternative group’s first release since their last EP, ‘Escaping from a Violent Time, Vol 2’, which was released in January of this year.
Self-produced and mixed by Nathan Boddy (Mura Masa, Biig Piig, PinkPantheress), the energetic track riffs of Bad Sounds’ own sonic style while taking in some seemingly newfound influences.
“We’re absolutely delighted be the latest in a long list of bands ripping off the Beatles and repackaging it as our own,” the band jest. “‘Nu Me Nu Yu’ is a song that was originally destined for one of our side projects, but everybody we know told us it sounds too much like Bad Sounds, so we eventually got the hint and now we feel silly for not realizing it ourselves. The lyrics are pretty self-explanatory, they’re just spelled stupid.
The track has also arrived with a music video, offering a vibrant and eclectic visual accompaniment
Bad Sounds explain: “The video is super DIY just like they were when we first started out. We built a room of mirrors and spent a day bumping into our reflections and trying to not break the glass floor/ceiling/walls. It was super fun to shoot and kinda trippy to watch. We really hope people like it!”
