Inspired by a painting in the Imperial War Museum, The Blinders have shared their new single and video, “Mule Track”, the latest to be taken from their upcoming album Fantasies Of A Stay At Home Psychopath, out on 17th July via Modern Sky UK.

A brooding blend of driving guitars and distorted vocals, the track weaves between explosive crescendos of volatile intensity and woozy passages which plunge into a dark and ethereal ambience, before igniting once again with blistering intent.

The darkly surreal video matches the raw, frenetic energy of the song perfectly.

The Blinders announced their new album, “Fantasies Of A Stay At Home Psychopath”, A dark blues-waltz underpinned by propulsive bass and evocatively prosaic lyricism, the track straddles the lines between ode and lament while addressing life’s confusing crossroads. The track is accompanied by an arresting video, which cuts between the band performing and wandering the atmospherically bleak landscape.

The Album will be the follow-up to their critically acclaimed debut album, “Columbia”, released in 2018, the album explores existential despair, mental health and society’s ills in a time of planetary crisis, and is both a riposte to, and commentary on, the rise of populist ideology. Delivering a blistering collection of powerful tracks, “Fantasies Of A Stay At Home Psychopath” is imbued with the visceral energy of IDLES, the twisted melodies of solo-era Lennon and the darkness of the Bad Seeds.

Taken from the album ‘Fantasies Of A Stay At Home Psychopath’. Out July 17th 2020.
