FOLD: To Be Hated And Thus Corrected

Back with new single To Be Hated And Thus Corrected Leeds outfit Fold are aiming to re-connect with their people at gigs, post-pandemic and also post line-up changes – since their whole rhythm section has now been replaced. Once more pairing chilled soundtrack style beats with spoken word samples – on this occasion from Pulitzer Prize-winning poet Gwendolyn Brooks and Jonathan Livingstone Seagull author Richard Bach, the track, like previous efforts, has a message. As the monkey understands it, that turns out to be something like the opposite of the austerity-era, oppressor-enabling bullshit mantra, ‘Keep calm and carry on.’ In other words, if something is unjust, don’t roll your eyes and accept it and certainly don’t believe things can’t be changed – that’s just a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury and signifying nothing – no, if you hate something, get to work on ‘correcting’ it.
