Cassels have shared their new single, 'The Queue At The Chemists’.
A song that touches on climate change, it’s the latest track from their upcoming album ‘The Perfect Ending’, due 6th September via Big Scary Monsters.
Vocalist Jim Beck says of the song: “While the last two singles were broadly about animals and plants, this one is about humans. Specifically, about how many of us are now fully aware of the irreparable damage we're doing to the planet, but are still not taking any meaningful action to prevent it. In reality, climate change is too huge an issue to carry around in our heads every day, and so inevitably pales into insignificance when faced with the microscopic inconveniences and trivialities of modern life.
"Even those of us who consider ourselves environmentally conscientious aren't going to stop buying oranges and mangos which have been flown half way around the world, or burning fossil fuels so we can travel around on tour singing songs about how many of us are now fully aware of the irreparable damage we're doing to the planet, but are still not taking any meaningful action to prevent it.”
