A savagely sardonic swipe at scenester culture, the ’No Fun’ video delivers visuals as sharp of wit and dry of humour as the expertly acerbic lyrics by Declan Welsh that soundtrack it.
Equal measures chaotic and comical, new single ‘No Fun’ is a snarky riposte to all the pouters and posers found to be draining the life from your typical Glasgow party. From the appropriation of Scottish working class ‘buckfast’ culture, to that one guy wearing a bucket hat ironically blaring out 80’s cheese, desperate to be the life of the party, ‘No Fun’ takes aim at the various forms of ‘party chat’ encountered in a Glasgow flat at 3am. As Declan explains:
‘’No Fun’ is about the inflated self importance of the kind of people who get full of it at a party and corner you to tell you about how they went on holiday and seen “the real Thailand”. It’s about folk with no self awareness. It’s about people who think they are the kings of all banter because they put on a funny hat at 3am. It’s about people who say the word sesh with no hint of irony. It’s about people who say the word sesh ironically. It’s about people who say the word sesh.’ - Declan Welsh
