about

Hull’s DIY punks LIFE have been making a name for themselves recently. With their previous single ‘Popular Music’ attracting heavy support from the likes of Annie Mac and Huw Stephens, as well as turning the head of indie champion Steve Lamacq, who hung with the band whilst broadcasting his 6 Music show in Hull, the four-piece are now revealing its addictive follow up.

With blood, sweat and snappy lyrics that put popular culture under the microscope, LIFE have been finding success in their recent run of self-released singles - and ‘Rare Boots’ is no different. Produced again by Grammy award-winning collaborator Ian Dowling (Bombay Bicycle Club, Wavves,) the track is a punchy, melodic slice of punk-rock that knocks you down with hollered vocals, then brings you round again with an infectious guitar riff and rolling drums.

Lead by brothers Mez & Mick, LIFE is a project fuelled by passion; a passion for music, for enterprise, and for their hometown. Their cutting take on punk-rock isn’t the product of focus groups or boardrooms, but the sound of four workers from Hull, kicking against the brain dead, the ego lead and the morally corrupt, and creating something with real heart, mind and soul.

LIFE Hull, UK

Dressed in black, with a rattling set of hook-heavy energetic songs LIFE are not to be ignored. Four workers from Hull who flirt with pop culture, twisted word plays, wasted youth and the horrors of 21st century consumerism. In a London-centric industry dominated by co-writes and privilege, LIFE bring authenticity to the table. Irresistible dark pop that holds a dirty mirror up to modern life. ... more

Track Name: Rare Boots
Spanking out at quarter to four. Tina’s on the candy-canes says she doesn’t drink anymore. Spanking out at quarter past four, you’ve gotta take some time out of your life are you sure? I watch the trash bake. I stare into space I see nothing. I fell on my face I felt nothing. Times the kind of thing you erase. Aarons got rare boots again says he’s gonna kick through the walls. Times the kind of thing that you chase until you run out. Face it you’re a mess you’re a waste. I watch the trash bake. I stare into space I see nothing. I fell on my face I felt nothing. Sproatley’s about ten miles away mate. But Teddy’s got a Corsa and of course he’ll stop for beers on the way. Jennie lives off glycerine paste because she says its low in calories likes the taste. She watches trash bake. I stare into space I see nothing. I fell on my face I felt nothing. has my luck come in. or has it stopped. they sent a crate of cigarettes to the north. there’s a quiet man inside everyone. they sent a crate of cigarettes to the north. I keep hearing voices calling my name!
