Working Men’s Club has released a new track, “Ploys.” The song is off their recently announced second album, Fear Fear, and follows the previously released “Widow” and “Circumference.”
The band’s self-titled debut album was released in 2020, and they announced in September that the follow-up was completed.
Fear Fear will come out on July 15 via Heavenly, and frontman Syd Minsky-Sargeant discussed its creation and themes in a statement, saying: “The first album was mostly a personal documentation lyrically, this is a blur between personal and a third-person perspective of what was going on.
“I like the contrast of it being happy, uplifting music and really dark lyrics,” he added. “It’s not a minimal record, certainly compared to the first one. That’s because there’s been a lot more going on that needed to be said.”
Edwin Burdis directed the video for the song, which features Jamaican international weightlifter Chloe Whylie.
Talking about the video Edwin said: “When we heard the album I wanted to be involved immediately. It was a good opportunity to work with the artist/hybrid athlete Whylie and create a meeting of feminine meets masculine in an EDM-world.”
