East Yorkshire post-punks LIFE share ‘Excites Me’ from latest record


Hull outfit LIFE have released ‘Excites Me’, the latest single taken from their recently released second album A Picture Of Good Health.

It follows the release of their critically acclaimed sophomore record and a recent A-listing on BBC 6 Music for ‘Hollow Thing’.

The band also played a blistering BBC Radio 1 Maida Vale session for Jack Saunders and a packed out album launch in a Camden kebab shop.

Listen to ‘Excites Me’ by LIFE on the Shoot Music New Releases playlist on Spotify.

Speaking about the single, frontman Mez Green, said “Sometimes music hits you like a shot of pure adrenaline, like electricity in your blood stream, like a never ending firework. Sometimes music heals you. Sometimes music excites you. Music excites me. Let it excite you.”

Produced by Luke Smith (Foals) and mixed by Claudius Mittendorfer (Parquet Courts), the band honed in on a bigger and more focused sound whilst also channelling the lyrical content inwards.

Whereas the band’s debut album Popular Music was broadly political, the new album took a more personal approach with beguilingly honest and brave lyrics that are bold in both sound and feeling, whilst also retaining the core DNA of their previous material.
