South African-born, UK-raised Skinny Pelembe has shared his new single, ‘Oh, Silly George’.
It’s second single since signing to Partisan, following November’s ‘Like A Heart Won’t Beat’.
Speaking about the music video and song, Skinny said, “Just a few snapshots of those ‘strangers’ that we know. Whether on home soil or in motion, always the eternal stranger. Someone asked me if George is England. He wasn’t when I wrote it, but it’s a cool idea… Anyway, I’m not here to spoon feed you the meanings of all this, do some of the graft yourself. Lots of trying to make me and Malcolm [Catto] sound sampled. Fucking 1, and 2 beat chops on the drums and guitar. An extremely considered but ramshackle groove. I was hearing early Macca, but Malc reckons the synths sound more like Wham! That might be a bad thing, but sometimes bad feels good.”
