Nadine Shah rails against the sycophants on latest track "Yes Men"

07 June 2017, 10:46 | Written by Laurence Day

Nadine Shah puts the insipid yaysayers firmly in her crosshairs on swampy post-punk bulldozer "Yes Men".

The fiery cut follows "Out The Way" in previewing upcoming third LP Holiday Destination.

"Any time is a relevant one to release a piece of work that deals with the subject matter that 'Yes Men' does," says Shah of the new offering. "This week, these upcoming days towards what could be the most important election this country has had in decades, it seems so pertinent to the point that it’s violently vibrating with its own life."

"Yes Men are the people that sell the lies and convince us that their enemy is our enemy," Shah continues. "They’re the people who hide in plain sight behind bold typefaces on the covers of mainstream media outlets, the ones that would make us believe that the hand in power which is perpetually slapping you in the face is the hand that will someday pull us from a chasm of its own creation. There is a war going on but it’s not the one the Yes Men will have us believe. The real war is the divisive untruths that the Yes Men push into our homes with their aim being for us to tear ourselves apart simply to protect their own top dollar arses."

Shah has a lengthy run UK shows for October, including a stop at London's O2 Shepherd's Bush Empire and a set at this year's Simple Things Festival. Find full tour details on Shah's website.
