Bedford trio The Scruff return with their brand new single ‘Vultures’. The song tears out of the blocks with an infectious bounce and swagger as it snarls at hysterical scaremongering newsfeeds and the damaging effects social media has on people’s mental health.
Regarding the single frontman Adam James Urwin says, “It’s a hit back against the modern day phenomenon of the scathing comments section. Hours can be lost sifting through back and forths that wouldn’t happen in the street but are all so common in the Internet age. The song addresses the stark reality of coming to terms with a future where freedom of speech means thousands of hateful, unsolicited comments which impact on thousands of lives the whole world over.”
‘Vultures’ is the first taste of what to expect from The Scruff in 2020 as they set their sights on their debut album. They bring a punk-fuelled energy matched with a contagious indie-pop sheen and dexterous songwriting. The track is produced by Jason Perry (Fatherson, Don Broco, McFly) and mixed by Drew Bang (Slaves, Royal Blood, The Japanese House).
