Mystery Jets aren’t messing about with new number ‘Screwdriver’

Hold on to your horses, Mystery Jets are back with an absolute dazzlah in the form of latest single ‘Screwdriver’

A Foals-esque stomper when it all kicks off, it follows last month’s ‘Hospital Radio’ as a cracking sign of what new album ‘A Billion Heartbeats’ is set to bring to the fray. Complete with a cinematic new video where all sorts is going on - it’s clear Mystery Jets aren’t playing about.

Speaking about the track, Blaine Harrison from the band said:

Screwdriver is about the mechanics of intolerance. Looking back at times of economic instability in history, we see how easily deep chasms grow in society and the population seeks change wherever it is most convincingly promised. Conflict arises as cultures and belief systems clash, unwilling to accept one another’s place in society, because we are fed the rhetoric that our neighbours are those responsible for our problems: then inevitably nationalism once more raises its ugly head above the parapet. But whereas political agendas fuel divisiveness, music unites and reminds us of all that we have in common. The message of Screwdriver is not a pessimistic one - because perhaps faced with confrontation we can find understanding, and even maybe learn how to listen to, and love one another.”

The ‘Jets will head out on a big’ol UK headline tour in November to celebrate the release of ‘A Billion Heartbeats’ - spanning across the nation November 5th all the way through to a huge London night at Shepherd’s Bush Empire on November 20th.
