Gruff Rhys is pleased to announce a new two track single called “People are Pissed” available now via Rough Trade Records. The tracks are available digitally now and also for pre-order on special Limited Edition cassette format, designed by regular collaborator Mark James. This is an exclusive to Gruff Rhys and Rough Trade and not available at retail stores. Order now!
Gruff says: “The lyrics were basically inspired by the widespread anger I - and many other people felt towards the incompetence and arrogance of the Johnson regime during the lockdowns - not that I feel any different now. I mean the words go off on one like most of my songs but that was the seed of the idea.”
Gruff is set to play shows across Spain and France this month before returning to his hometown of Cardiff as part of the BBC 6 Music festival.
