Into Music Review: Pandemic Pete by The Filthy Tongues

Artist: The Filthy Tongues
Track: Pandemic Pete

It’s fair to say The Filthy Tongues have been rather busy during lockdown. Having released the single Gas Mark Blues in July, the band will follow that up with the sumptuous Pandemic Pete on 21st September 2020.

The single is classic Filthy Tongues, delving into the underbelly of corrupt Bankers, dodgy deals, fake news, vampires, zombies, plagues and aliens and at least one reference to David Bowie.

Clocking in at just under 4 minutes, this is a foreboding, taut and menacing tune which perfectly sums up the lockdown mood. The addition of swirling keys from Rona Scobie elevates the sound for what is a post punk belter.

The track will be played on George Paterson’s Lost In Music radio show on Cumbernauld FM this Sunday 27 September 2020 and keep your eyes peeled to the Into Creative site as we have an exclusive interview with the band’s singer Martin Metcalfe coming soon.

Pandemic Pete can be purchased via the band’s Bandcamp page here and to obtain regular updates, sign up to their newsletter here.
