Once again Mike Skinner, as The Streets, captures the nations socio-political attitude – this time regarding Britain’s Lockdown Finale with his roguish tune ‘Who’s Got the Bag (21st June)’.
A tantalising reprieve from club-less culture. Skinner is staunchly committed to lockdown’s end – planning in advance who’s bringing what to the nation’s biggest club night.
Following the overwhelming response to his Instagram tune teaser, ‘Who’s Got the Bag (21st June)’ is set to be ‘first in the room’ at post-lockdown parties nationwide.
Spitting puns in the face of the political elite, Skinner toys with his persecutors. He comments: “It’s a protest song, it’s saying, don’t change the date on us again!”
A hedonistic ode to the British way of life: The sesh. While maintaining a serious yet effervescent message. Mike Skinner adds: “It's also about hospitality, events and nightclubs not being able to take anymore.”
A rallying cry signally the date and time we decide lockdown ends.
