Sad Boys Club have shared their new single ‘White Hart Lane’, a timely ode to the perils of being a Tottenham Hotspur fan.
Out now, the new single comes as the indie troupe lay out plans for their incoming EP ‘I’m Not Afraid Of The Death (But I Am Afraid Of The Dying)’.
A neat, trimmed indie thumper with a bittersweet after-taste, ‘White Hart Lane’ is about the North London club, and the ups ‘n’ downs of life in its wake.
Opening with tinkling notes of piano, there are shades of Death Cab For Cutie in the melody, while lyrically it discusses a deeply English obsession.
Lead singer Jacob Wheldon comments…
“When the seagulls follow the trailer it’s because they think sardines will be thrown into the sea. Football’s a big part of my life, a source of passion, love, and a sense of community, but it also reduces us to primal versions of ourselves, versions that shouldn’t be seen, and sensitivities that should.”
“There’s a visceral thing there that felt worth exploring. I’m taking the narrative over from the blokes and the boot boys. It’s a sport for the saps and the sad, for the lonely secular optimist who needs something to believe in.”
Tune in now.
