Comet Gain, the cultishly loved UK indie greats led by David Feck, are back with their first album in five years, titled Fireraisers Forever! that will be out October 11 via Tapete. If 2014’s Paperback Ghosts was gentle and folky, Fireraisers Forever! finds them mad as hell, taking aim at a variety of subjects. One of them: nostalgia. “Mid 8Ts” is an organ-fueled anthem that may have fond memories of the days of Vespas and Beatle Boots (“we were ’60s in the ’80s”) but argues for living in the now. “Old mods with bellies and hair like shit,” they sing, adding “all your heydays deserve better than this.”

The lyric video for “Mid 8Ts” premieres in this post and you can watch it below.
