JPEGMAFIA has shared a politically-charged new song titled ‘THE BENDS!’, alongside a self-directed music video in which he dances around a country road in a beekeeper’s suit. Check it out below.
In addition to referring to the current political climate as “sad”, the track also makes allusions to Radiohead’s sophomore album The Bends, as well as the band’s OK Computer single ‘No Surprises’: “No surprises, you know it’s the bends with me,” he raps.
The latest from Peggy follows a series of singles released in 2020, including ‘BALD!’, ‘Covered in Money!’, ‘BODYGUARD!’, and ‘CUTIE PIE!’.
