Premiere: pink suits – ‘Fake Great Britain’

Having first formed back in 2017, Margate based queer punk-rock duo pink suits incorporate politically driven rage, dance and even theatre into their work, exploring issues of sexuality, mental health and a resistance of binary gender. Having just announced their debut album, ‘Political Child’, they have now shared a brand new riotous single.

Propelled by a frenzied, angst-driven power and scuzzy hooks, ‘Fake Great Britain’ hits you with its raw, punk-fuelled lyricism raging against austerity and the fake ‘great’ ideals of a post-Brexit UK. With a seething, ferocious passion, it’s a rallying cry against this government and the intolerance it promotes, its lies and the detrimental effects it’s had on all of our mental health. A totally necessary listen, it’s a perfect riotous catharsis; an immense formidable force calling us to arms in these terrifying times. A queer punk anthem inciting us to get up, make our voices heard and fight fascism with all our might. (It’s also catchy as f**K – an instant earworm that you need in your ears now).

‘Fake Great Britain’ is accompanied by a wonderfully vibrant, poignantly pink-themed video – a perfect depiction of the inclusive Feminist rebellion that pink suits urge us to unite in to bring about radical change.

Watch for the first time now:

Mixed and mastered by Aim4 Recording, Canterbury, ‘Fake Great Britain’ was filmed in Margate with Dogbrain Videos.
