Today sees Regressive Left share their latest single, Take The Hit, their second release following on from their 2020 debut single, Eternal Returns. The band have also announced they are headlining The Windmill, Brixton on October 1st, with tickets available now. Listen to Take The Hit below.
Take The Hit takes inspiration from the UK’s political landscape as well as the grind of vocalist, Simon Tyrie’s office job and the inequality of life in big cities. Regressive Left provide an extremely unique sound, all 3 members of the band were once DJ’s, and now Take The Hit really allows their knowledge of dance music to come through.
Speaking about the track, the band state:
‘Take The Hit’ is about how neoliberalism acts as a shield for irresponsible politicians and greedy profiteers – as we try to disentangle the complex web of capitalism to find the spider at its heart, we end up instead blaming the countless flies that have been trapped along the way.’
Regressive Left’s debut single, Eternal Returns was released in late 2020 and received support from the likes of Rough Trade, So Young, DIY, Beats 1 and many more.
Take The Hit is a song that will feel just at home on the dancefloor as it will on stage, tickets to the band’s headline show at The Windmill in Brixton are £6 and are available via Dice.
