Nottingham outfit Do Nothing are back with their new single ‘LeBron James’. Following in the wake of their recent release ‘Gangs’, their latest track packs a swaggering punch.

Continuing their upwards ascent, ‘LeBron James’ continues their penchant for whip-smart lyrics and toe-tapping rhythms, channelling elements of LCD Soundsystem and Talking Heads with their artsy approach to rock. Slowly taking a more angsty turn, the track takes a sardonic swing at con-men and scammers with a knowing wink.

“I had been sitting around in my room for days watching documentaries and generally doing very little, and ended up writing a song about con artists, fraudsters and the like,” shares vocalist Chris Bailey. “The name refers to William McFarland (the Fyre festival guy) peddling tickets to fake events to gullible schmucks. It isn’t actually about Lebron James.”

‘LeBron James’ is available now via Exact Truth.
