Manchester punk trio Aerial Salad has their first new music since the release of their ‘Dirt Mall’ album in early 2020 and are back with a new single ‘The Same 24 Hours (As Beyoncé)’

Following the release of their 2020 album ‘Dirt Mall’, a pandemic, a few lockdowns and then a much-needed dash for freedom on a UK tour with Snuff, Manchester trio Aerial Salad are back with new music!

‘The Same 24 Hours (As Beyoncé)’ is a scathing criticism of modern influencer, celebrity, and social media culture. 

Inspired by Love Island contestant and social media influencer Molly Mae, quoted as saying, “Beyoncé has the same 24 hours in a day that we do”, the new Aerial Salad single captures the frustration that millions of people have with this sentiment.

“The new single throws jabs at modern working life, and the constant feeling of ‘survival’ over prosperity for millions of British people who are just trying to live nice, relaxing, lowkey lives,” explains guitarist and vocalist Jamie Munro. “But between soaring energy prices and unrealistic life expectations set by the likes of Molly Mae on social media, everyone is just left burnt out and hurting.”

In typical Aerial Salad fashion, they deliver this message in a fun, sarcastic, cheeky, and infectiously catchy way, flexing their ability to step outside of their immediately recognisable sound, whilst remaining true to the essence of the band.

The video was recorded just outside of Vibe recording studio in Cheetam Hill, Manchester and subtly features clothes that the band have bought second hand as a last-ditch effort to stick one to fast fashion.

“If we had a bigger budget, it would have looked like the ‘Ashes To Ashes’ video by David Bowie,” laughs Jamie. “but we don’t have the money for a camera crew or make-up team so this will have to do for ya!”

Aerial Salad are unlikely to become TikTok sensations anytime soon with their dancing but they are set to become one of the hottest punk bands on the planet.

They play a special single launch gig at Blondies in East London on September 15th, which is already SOLD OUT, so there!

There will be more Aerial Salad very soon.
