Children Collide Shares New Single “Man of the People”

Set to release their long-awaited fourth studio album Time Itself on Friday, August 27 via Spinning Top Records, today Children Collide drops their fuzzed out new single “Man of the People,” and the song’s accompanying video.

“Man of the People” erupts with all the hallmarks of Children Collide – riffs that can set entire fields into a seismic bounce, churning bass lines and walloping drums. “Originally titled “Dark Bird” this was an instrumental I’d written just after Monument. I pulled it out, dusted it off and wrote lyrics in New York at the height of the Trump presidency. I was having a bit of a rock bottom moment personally and my whole world felt like cocaine, mezcal and pathetic desperation against the backdrop of a Murdochian dystopia where the bastards had won. My reaction is always to stuff my hopelessness into an aural time capsule. I love how heavy Loren and Doug made it and the one take solo gives me anxiety when I listen back,” muses frontman Johnny Mackay of the track.
