Glueland – Do Nothing

Nottingham post-punk band Do Nothing have followed up their debut EP, April’s ‘Zero Dollar Bill’ with ‘Glueland’. Speaking on the new song, frontman Chris Bailey says, “The song refers to the feeling of being stuck in some kind of weird limbo-land. It’s about how rather than being dictated by wild or dramatic decisions, a lot of things (both good and bad) are controlled by this sort of lame jockeying that happens right in the grey dull middle ground of everything. That being said, it’s a fun song and we hope you like it.”

Sleaford Mods – Mork and Mindy

The latest release from Nottingham duo Sleaford Mods featuring rising star Billy Nomates. Of the song, frontman Jason Williamson says: ‘Mork and Mindy’ was written in January. That basically talks about my childhood and how colorless it tended to be. I wanted to try and bring that across in a song. But at the same time, I loved it, but at the same time, I hated it. I wanted to try to bring all of that across. And I think we really nailed it with that song. I’m really proud of that song. We had Billy Nomates to do a guest spot on it and she really transformed it, to be honest. She is the rightful star on that song, I think. And it’s the first time we’ve collaborated with someone.’
