The Winter Fuel Allowance Ineligibility Blues
durham’s favourite DIY punks return with two tastily tantalising tracks that marry energetic, impassioned power pop with intricate vocal interplay and lush four-part harmonies.
their b-side take on the marked men’s “Fix My Brain”, is exclusive to this release. it’s a back to basics punk ripper, delivered with Martha's harmonious Northern charm. the single’s themes are bittersweet; it's about the horrors of austerity and desperation but finding power in the tiny acts of resistance - whether it’s being in love or simply putting the heating on. Their debut album “Courting Strong” came out in 2014 and was included in NPR's top 50 albums of that year, winning them the epithet “One of Britain's best rock bands” from Drowned in Sound. recommended for fans of the Julie ruin, hookworms and milky wimpshake.
