Having met accidentally in a string of pubs across Manchester, guitar-pop newcomers The Accident Group share their debut single, The Myth of Sisyphus.
The single, which is reminiscent of early Sports Team combined with the 70s charm of XTC and Sparks, features smart lyricism and infectious wit. Speaking of the track, vocalist and guitarist, George Unitt, states:
The Myth of Sisyphus is about modern service industry graft, told through the medium of ancient Greek mythology. It’s always been a big one when we play live, everyone kicks off and goes mad. I think it’s a cathartic song, everyone’s fed up with constantly working their arse off and then feeling like they’re getting fucked over. You make more money, then there’s an energy crisis. So you work harder, and then there’s a cost of living crisis. It’s endless. I suppose the song is about finding some joy in all of that.
Having already built a name for themselves in Manchester’s live music scene, with each of their local headline shows selling out, The Accident Group have enjoyed notable support slots for the likes of The Blinders, LIFE and The Lovely Eggs.
