Feet's latest single English Weather brings a sunny disposition to the inevitably gloomy climes, and continues to establish the fivesome as one of the most deservedly hyped bands around. Shacking up late last year in what would come to be known as the “Barn Sessions”, the band set themselves the heady task of penning their first album in the wake of previous single Backseat Driver and their riotous, attention-grabbing debut Petty Thieving. Taking the jovial bounce of last year’s track and the bolshy swagger of the latter, English Weather puts an eye-rolling spin on the abysmal British habit of prematurely getting their kit off in the anticipation of a Mediterranean heatwave.
“All I wanna do is sit alone on purpose sipping a brew,” intones vocalist Jeep like a 2019 Damon Albarn. “Pasty people in the park with their tops off” and “suncream police”, he observes on the banal normality of BST. Infused with a lackadaisical groove, baggy undertones, fidgety guitars, and chipper backing vocals, the track is set to be a sure-fire fan-favourite of their infamously raucous live show. Self-aware and sarcastic in a quintessentially British manner, English Weather shows it never hurts to hope for the best and prepare for the worst. (Line of Best Fit).
