NECK DEEP have never been one to shy away from tackling social issues in their music and their latest release ‘We Need More Bricks’ is no exception. Packaged up in a super catchy and upbeat pop punk wrapper, the song takes on topics of morality and injustice that are prevalent in today’s societal and political systems.
‘We Need More Bricks is, in my opinion, Neck Deep at their political best,” shares vocalist Ben Barlow, “Touching on everything from the monarchy, immigration, protest laws and international wars. We find ourselves at a cross section in the zeitgeist where bricks could be used to build something, or to be destructive. I’m calling on punks and those that want to make a difference, to do so. As well as being our most poignant political track to date, it also features my favourite riff/ breakdown we’ve ever written, with a mosh call that, I hope, makes the listener think about their role in the world, and to speak up, take action on the many injustices the world faces today. I’m looking forward to playing this one live the most of any track on the record. If this one doesn’t get you moving then maybe Jason Derulo is more up your street.”
The single to be released from their forthcoming self-titled album, ‘Neck Deep’, released on January 19th 2024, on Hopeless Records. Watch the visualiser below.
