After snarling summer single ‘Dead Dreamers’ welcomed back them back, Demob Happy continue the hype with a thunderous new tune.
The second single since 2015’s Dream Soda, ‘Be Your Man’ sees the thrashing Brighton trio do exactly what they do best. Manic riffs and a stadium-ready chorus is explosively huge, with a subtle 60’s twist that makes it all the more catchy.
On the track, frontman Matt Marcantonio explains: “The most important thing has been asking ourselves “what are we now?”. A lot’s changed since the first album, in our heads and our situations, the things life brings. It was mutate or die… so we reset ourselves and just wrote what felt good. We could have compensated by adding more and more to make it bigger and bigger, but that’s a never-ending game of dick wagging tail chasing, and it’s not a game we play – so we did the opposite, and focused in on harmony and swing, the stuff that excites us. It’s like The Beatles found peyote and fuzz pedals instead of acid and sitars. It’s exactly what we wanted it to be.”
