What’s New? Martha – The Winter Fuel Allowance Ineligibility Blues

The new single from Martha – about time! – is a beautiful nugget of anti-Tory protest disguised as a twitchy love song, bizarrely all about turning the heating on for someone you love.

Sung in their ever-endearing northern accents and backed by reliably scuzzy guitars, ‘The Winter Fuel Allowance Ineligibility Blues’ doubles down on the trio’s perfect pop formula and is another delightful entry into their canon. Stuffed with catchy melodies and in and out in 2 minutes, it promises to become the protest track for the next years of May’s government – and, as with all Martha tracks, finds glory in the gory.
