Martha – “Hope Gets Harder” [Video]

| |

Durham indiepop-punks Martha have shared furious new single “Hope Gets Harder,” a song about England. The track is the third track to be taken from the band’s forthcoming album Please Don’t Take Me Back out 28th October on Dirtnap Records (US) and Specialist Subject Records (UK). 
Talking about the new track, Martha said: “‘Hope Gets Harder’ is a song about England: a uniquely fucking terrible idea. A place governed by the most absurdly mediocre people in history. Selfish, rich, thick, malevolent ghouls propped up by a bootlicking, self-congratulating, stenographic, client-journalist news media that puts North Korea to shame. England is a grey, damp artifice, vibrating to a quasi-fascist background hum, where the majority live miserable hopeless lives, so that a tiny minority can live in extravagant luxury. As we lurch violently from one crisis to the next, it feels like the light of any hope for the future is slowly dying. But we have to try and find hope in one another, and together we have to fight like hell for a more socially and ecologically just world. No fate but what we make for ourselves. Abolish england. Fuck the king.”
