THE GOA EXPRESS share their anthemic new single “Everybody In The UK”, a melodic call-to-arms for togetherness in a world that increasingly looks to drive us apart. It’s a further statement piece from the Manchester five-piece, close friends since their teens, that they’re making music set to connect on a much wider level than most.
“Everybody In The UK” is the band’s first release since both “Be My Friend” and it’s Mark Gardener (Ride) mixed B-side “Second Time” made BBC 6 Music’s A-list. The song has become a live favourite for the band at numerous sold out headline shows, and as they took to the road on tours with The Magic Gang and Shame at the tail end of last year.
Vocalist James Clarke had the following to say about it:
“A song written for us all, “Everybody In The UK” throws us all together into one big, shared experience, whether we like it or not. Without a real plan in mind, it soothes thoughts about growing up and jokes that it’s okay not to want to. With everyone welcome, those not onboard are to be left behind: the journey must go on…”
