With controversy following their every step, Karl Phillips & The Rejects don’t look set to change course with their new single, ‘Ingurland’.
The band, who have received praise from BBC 6 Music’s Tom Robinson for their signature snappy rapping, continue their winning streak with their newest release.
Banned by Twitter for impersonating Katie Hopkins, the band march on and this time, they have set the whole country in their sights. Set to a choppy beat, the track discusses hipsters, conspiracy theorists and the wider political landscape.
The video sees the band portraying characters from across the British Isles, portraying those seen to be damaging to the dream of an equal, peaceful society.
The band describe the track as “[relating to] our awareness that many people live in a negative bubble and use adversity to further their own agenda… people say one thing but their agenda dictates they really mean something else”.
The Northampton based band combine several different genres, from punk to ska to hip-hop, to create a punchy and memorable track. What’s more, all of this is accomplished with a signature dose of incisive humour that allows Karl and the band to take on the most important issues in ‘Ingurland’ in the most striking and brilliant way.
