Cheap Cuts have teamed up with Pete Wentz for their wonderfully barmy new single, 'Check Your Phone'

Cheap Cuts have teamed up with Pete Wentz for their new single, 'Check Your Phone'.

The song tackles phone addiction via an immensely catchy tune that really, has to be heard to be believed.

The duo explain: “The more we developed the song, translated it into different languages and then collaborated with Pete, we realised the whole world had got itself in a big anxious hurry without realising. It’s as if we all heard Baz Luhrmann’s Sunscreen at the end of the 90s, and decided to ignore every bit of advice in that song. To me, that’s what check your phone is about."

“It’s funny to have everything in the world in a device at the tip of my fingers and feel like it is swallowing me whole sometimes," Pete adds. "Without a doubt, my phone has made touring, staying in touch and finding out random actors who voiced GI Joe characters from the 80s cartoon easier. But my addiction to it is complicated – the last thing I look to at night is its hazy blur, and it is the first text message that jolts me awake in the morning.

“To me this song is about the anxiety it gives me, but at the same time, the way I feel a bit lighter when I watch a video on it of raccoons walking around like people or whatever. It is messy and filled with complex, opposing perspectives that seem to contradict each other – just like us."
