The Hubbards have taken aim at fast fashion on their brand new single ‘Seven or Eleven’, the first release from Scruff of the Neck since their Best Small Label win at the AIM Awards earlier this month. 

The new tune, complete with spectacularly Depop Y2K cover art, is a classic indie song with a strong focus on the lyrics, which are the first foray into social commentary for the Hull band. Tied up with a neat looping bow of a guitar, the chorus begs of the listener: “tell me where you got your outfit from.” Hear the single here:

Shrugging on the persona of a consumer helpless for the dopamine spike of shopping, ‘Seven or Eleven’ is a lilting slacker pop song that builds and wanes like the rise and fall of a spending addiction. 

Released on Scruff of the Neck, the single is a softer, snarkier side to The Hubbards, with previous releases exhibiting less of the misanthropy and more of the bubblegum. Hear the leisurely clash of The Hubbards’ instruments on ’Seven or Eleven’ when they play up North in the New Year.
