Wild Beasts’ Tom Fleming looks at what makes this country tick with his new single, ‘Dawn At The Factory’

His debut solo record is coming later this month.

One True Pairing, aka Wild Beasts’ Tom Fleming, has unveiled his new single, ‘Dawn At The Factory’.

It’s the latest cut from his upcoming self-titled record, due 20th September, which you’ll be able to read all about in the October issue of Dork. (But that’s not out yet, so you didn’t hear it from us.)

Talking about the song, he says: “2019’s satanic mills – zero hours, suicide nets, universal credit, cheap labour. The blue-white glow of the factories out on the gyratory and the plastic-clad office blocks of the town centre.

“I wanted to strip the romance back and look at what makes this country run, what makes it tick. The factories are hungry and it’s you they want. I wanted it to sound like the open road but there’s just too much barbed wire around it. The same every night. You do what you have to do. Knackered synths and a Floyd rose.”

Check out ‘Dawn At The Factory’ below, and catch Tom on tour throughout September, October and November.
