PREMIERE: Feral Five share video for festive single ‘I Want U’

Reclaiming Christmas with a rejection of commercialism and materialism, Feral Five have shared the video for ‘I Want U.’

Accompanying a track that is dripping with sass – electro, pulsating beats that go against the Christmas-grain but enough sparkle to keep it festive – the video is a lo fi film, distorted lights and Christmas trees, furthering Feral Five’s disaffection with the commercialism of Christmas. With lyrics like:

“I don’t need a fitness band, some running shoes /
I don’t need a skipping rope I’ll never use…
You won’t fit down the chimney so get a cab /
I’ll start of with the whisky so the time won’t drag.”

Feral Five are rejecting trash – does anyone really want more socks?! – and asking for what they really want this Christmas.


‘I Want U’ is out now.
