Fat White Family share new single 'Tastes Good With The Money'

With their eagerly-awaited new album set to drop this time next month, Fat White Family have now unveiled the next cut to be lifted from their forthcoming full-length.

The new single 'Tastes Good With The Money' comes accompanied with a new video, directed by none other than Roisin Murphy, and follows on from the previously shared track 'Feet' in previewing their third LP 'Serfs Up!', due out on the 19th April through Domino Recordings.

Speaking about the new video, Murphy added, "I’ve been making it known for years how much I wanted to make a video for this band. I’m a massive fan of FWF and I’ve been chasing this opportunity for a long time. I used every possible connection I had, I have asked people to ask people, I’ve contacted the band on social media, I really set my heart on this. For me there’s such a charm about them and an authenticity that’s actually incredibly rare. I knew I could not possibly work with a more magnetic bunch of performers.

"The idea of referencing Monty Python partly came out of the somewhat absurd and confusing political landscape that we are now living in Britain, Python seems prescient. The British laughing at themselves, a certain kind glee even in the loss of empire, singing as the ship goes down, well it just seems so...of the moment. There is this deep ambivalence to the establishment that resonates with the Fat Whites own irreverent world view.

"Most of all I wanted an idea that would give them the confidence and the space to really let go and just perform, too allow them to be raw in what is essentially an unnatural situation for a bunch of ne’er do well musicians.

"When I look at the video, what I see is the trust they put in me and I’m so proud of that. Maybe it’s because I am a performer too but they let themselves be put in a kind-of vulnerable situation; they allowed themselves to be foolish, silly and absurd in a way that could have gone tits-up, however, the result is hilarious and the performances are second to none."
