Groovy rant

With uniform handclapping and ominous riffs, Sam Fender opens up “Aye” with a dark introspection of the right vs left battle as he watches the world engage in pointless social media war whereas the 1% continue making more money. “Aye” delineates chaos and its stomping repetitive hooks reverberate the routine-like tendency to be distracted by pointless venting without addressing the root of the problem. Hit play: 

On the song, Sam explains: “‘Aye’ is about the polarity between the left and the right wing, and how that leaves working class people displaced with a lack of political identity, playing into the hands of the 1%. It’s also a rant about my disdain for the greedy tax dodging billionaires of the world.”

The track is form his upcoming album Seventeen Going Under, which will be out on Interscope on October 8th.
