Like a dog chasing its own tail, the guitar lines in Haze’s ‘Ladz Ladz Ladz’ single are constant and repetitive, burrowing into your head. Deadpan vocals drawl over them, mocking toxic lad culture, that alternate between somewhat-excited yelps for the chorus. Mark E. Smith never died.
To complete the message, the young band have just dropped a music video for the track a simple one that manages to convey the all-encompassing and ever-pervasive ideology of masculinity, by simply showing all who glorify it. Clips of Tiger Woods, Dapper Laughs, football hooligans and, of course, Trump, breeze through.
Fresh from packing out the Old Blue Last for their first headline show, ‘Ladz Ladz Ladz’ is the first of three singles Haze plan to release this year.
‘Ladz Ladz Ladz’ is out now via Permanent Creeps Records – physical copies are available here through Rough Trade.
