Scottish 6-piece act Parliamo taps into those late nights of overthinking your existential dilemma in front of the TV screen in their new single “Life On The TV.” Built with references to Dennis The Menace and The Simpsons’ Ralph Wiggum, the track channels the discomforting feelings of anxiety and uneasiness that rises when you come back home after a night out and start overthinking as you mindlessly watch the screen. Check it out: 

Speaking of the song, the band said: “It’s a song about the crippling fear, something which most people can relate to, that feeling of hopelessness and embarrassment after a night out, as you sit in front of the TV and wither away – with overthinking, Lucozade and Kevin McLoud your only companions.”

The track is from their upcoming project The Parliamo Manifesto, which will be released later this year. They’ll go on tour soon:
