Do Nothing have returned with a brand new single, ‘Happy Feet’.
Their first new music since 2021’s ‘Glueland’ EP, the track was produced by Andy Savours (Black Country New Road, My Bloody Valentine) and mixed by Oli Barton Wood (Nilufer Yanya, Porridge Radio), and comes alongside a video courtesy of Luke Ainger.
The track speaks to the artistic process, inspired in part when the band hit a spell of writer’s block while working on their forthcoming yet-to-be-announced debut album. Vocalist Chris Bailey explains: “ [The lyric] ‘I put a leaflet in your bag for you to find later and burn’ is sort of a play on the idea that when you make music, you put it out in the world because you want people to hear it. It’s meant to be this pure expression of something, but there’s always that element of wanting people to like it.”
Also, importantly, it’s “not about penguins,” because he’s “never seen Happy Feet.”
Honestly. Some people just don’t appreciate culture.
A welcome return for a band of much promise, you can check out ‘Happy Feet’ below.
