Legendary dance outfit Orbital have made a hard-hitting new video about the current situation in Britain today to accompany their hypnotic new single “P.H.U.K.” The video features searing images such as scenes of police brutality, poverty and the shell of the Grenfell Tower, juxtaposed with the latest billionaire flats at the Battersea Power Station development in London.

One half of the revered techno duo Paul Hartnoll said of the video: “It’s a snapshot of the state of Britain today, where opulence and poverty rub shoulders amidst the chaos, a disparity that can be transposed to many other nations. But as Leonard Cohen once said, light shines through the cracks, so it’s not all bad! Please Help UK? You decide…

Video director Felix Green was inspired by the cyclical, mesmerising and relentless techno melody: “The track lends itself to highlighting some of the ironies, dissonances and juxtapositions present in UK politics and culture. It may look like we’re all totally P.H.U.K.’d but it’s actually not all doom and gloom…. we do have dancing policemen.

‘P.H.U.K.’ drops today, June 29 – the same day Orbital headline a home town show at Brighton Racecourse. This is the second single from their forthcoming album, ‘Monsters Exist,’ which is due for release on September 14 via ACP Recordings.The songs contained on ‘Monsters Exist’ demonstrate why Orbital have remained Britain’s giants of electronic music.
