I don’t give a f*** about people in love
they don’t piss me off
they just make me give up
Not our words, but those of Drenge. It's a commonly held feeling, though - it's tough being single, and it's made even tougher by coverting couples.
Stripped from their debut album, 'Fuckabout' addresses these feelings head on. As close to a ballad as the duo are likely to write, there are shades of Smashing Pumpkins' melancholia amidst the caress of the guitars.
As ever, Drenge have maintained control of the video process. Opening with a shot of a suburban house, the video is marked by its mundanity - an exploration of the ordinary, it seems to emphasise the boredom, the frustration inherent in the song.
Watch it now.
