DEADLETTER have dropped their new single, ‘Pop Culture Connoisseur’.
The stomping post-punk number is the first from the second instalment of Nice Swan Records’ Introduces… series, which has previously featured tracks from Courting, Sprints, Malady, English Teacher and more.
A press release explains: “[The song] finds singer and frontman Zac Lawrence switching from the overt politicism of previous releases into a more tongue-in-cheek narrative centred around the case of PC Read, a police officer fired for stealing doughnuts through a self-service checkout. In addition to providing a case study into the fashion those in positions of authority often consider themselves above the law, the track also aims to comment at the manner modern morality so often relates to PR optics, as the cultural trope of law enforcement eating doughnuts is played out in real time.”
