Cleopatrick share new single ‘OK’

‘OK’ goes headfirst into battle, with Luke’s signature quick-witted lyricism

Currently in the midst of their European summer festival run which includes Reading & Leeds Festivals on Friday 26th August and Saturday 27th August respectively, Canadian duo cleopatrick have shared their supercharged new single ‘OK’. STREAM HERE.

‘OK’ was produced in the back of the band’s tour van during the band’s North American tour with Royal Blood and their recent Canadian festival dates. cleopatrick debuted ‘OK’ during their live shows earlier this year, which included London’s Electric Ballroom in March.

‘OK’ goes headfirst into battle, with Luke’s signature quick-witted lyricism biting through chopped, stretched and looped production – illustrating the band’s ever thrilling and transgressive approach to guitar music.

“It’s a song about complacency, ignorance, and trying to fit into a digital future,” the band say of the track which was mixed by Pitchfork approved hip-hop beatmaker jonwayne. “It’s about asteroids, evil computers, sneaker brands, and illusory-worth of our digital personas. It’s a song about all the shit you have to click “OK” on these days. You do it so much you reach the point where you don’t really think about the meaning or implications of digital consent.”

Once again finding a creative and unique way to connect with their fanbase, in order to announce/tease the new track, cleopatrick set up http://www.okokok.biz and tweeted it out with no other info. They later shared that if fans got it to 1 million clicks, they’d drop something– it happened within an hour, and up went the pre-save for ‘OK’. The ticker is currently sitting at over 6.4 million clicks.

cleopatrick also recently released “A FILM CALLED: BUMMER”; a surreal concert-documentary that was shot at the band’s triumphant sold-out Toronto show at The Danforth Music Hall in December 2021. Directed and produced by @cowboydrugs, the film premiered simultaneously on YouTube and at an in-person screening at The Loft in the band’s hometown of Cobourg, ON.

Since their inception, cleopatrick have proved themselves to be one of the most in-demand rising rock bands on the planet. They were the only band picked for Amazon Music UK’s Ones To Watch 2021, and have amassed over 100 million streams alongside multiple sell-out tours and several shows (including London’s Alexandra Palace) supporting Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes in 2020.

cleopatrick’s gargantuan debut album ‘BUMMER’ was released last summer via their own label Nowhere Special Recordings, and received critical acclaim across the board from the likes of The Guardian, Independent, MTV UK, DIY, Kerrang, Rock Sound, Dork and Upset. The band were also chosen as BBC Radio 1’s first ever Future Artist, with regular plays on air from tastemakers Annie Mac, Jack Saunders and Dan P Carter.
