Everything Everything are everywhere, everywhere with their new single ‘Can’t Do’, taken from their upcoming fourth album A Fever Dream.
Stemming from issues with lack of confidence (been there) but concerning the struggle to find your place in the world (ditto), frontman Jonathan Higgs says; “’Can’t Do’ is about trying to bend to the world and fit into it. Nobody is normal, nobody knows what normal is. ‘I can’t do the thing you want’ – we don’t care we just want you to dance.”
And dance you will…
Down-beat lyrics twinned with an upbeat melody fools you into whistling along to an existential crisis. Although still very much a rock band, Everything Everything employ minimal guitar noodling over 90’s House synths, syncopated beats and Higgs’ falsetto/guttural snarl. Sharing the same sensibilities that converted new fans with 2015’s critically acclaimed Get To Heaven, ‘Can’t Do’ continues to create a sound which is unmistakably their own.
Take a listen, below.
A Fever Dream is produced by James Ford of Arctic Monkeys and Foals fame and is due for release on August 18th via RCA.
