Mystery Jets - Screwdriver

Mystery Jets - Screwdriver

With word of a brand spanking new album, Mystery Jets have today coincided the announcement with their latest single Screwdriver. Taken from the band's sixth studio album ‘A Billion Heartbeats’, which will be released on 27th September through Caroline International, the track delivers a much needed positive message amongst our crumbling world. Lead singer Blaine Harrison says of the song, “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.” Take a listen for yourselves below with a full list of the band's upcoming UK tour dates.
