Lol Tolhurst x Budgie x Jacknife Lee Share “We Got To Move” Feat. Isaac Brock

Lol Tolhurst x Budgie x Jacknife Lee will release their hard-hitting, much-anticipated album Los Angeles (Play It Again Sam) on November 3rd, 2023. The album’s 13 tracks dive into freedom and slavery, beauty and decay, hope and despair, and feature an astonishing list of guest vocalists and musicians – The Edge (U2), Civil Rights avant-garde artist Lonnie Holley, Mary Lattimore, Starcrawler wild child Arrow de Wilde, Mark Bowen (IDLES) and more. Having previously shared videos for “Los Angeles” ft LCD Soundsystem’s James Murphy and “Ghosted At Home” ft Primal Scream’s Bobby Gillespie, the band shares their frenetic new single, “We Got To Move” featuring Modest Mouse singer and frontman Isaac Brock. 

Of “We Got To Move,” the band note:

“This is one of the more existential tracks on ‘Los Angeles.’ It’s an homage to Philip Glass, Ron Fricke and Godfrey Reggio’s Koyaanisqatsi, with words by Isaac Brock,” notes Budgie. 

“Isaac is one of the most unique voices that we have. He’s brilliant,” adds Jacknife. “He gave us this weird, anxious, beautiful rush of a song. To pump up the duality within the song my daughters and I came up with a chorus that made us giddy with its ridiculousness. The song is absurd. The sound is absurd. And it’s about bugs.” 

With its eclectic mix of styles, Lol also asks, “Where else do you get Strings, DAF synths and Bhangra-Punjabi style percussion? Plus you get Isaac Brock and Jacknife and his daughters singing up a beautiful storm of a track.

The track comes accompanied by a suitably unhinged, raucous video directed by Daniel Rashid which features musician, comedian and actor Fred Armisen letting it all out alongside Lol and Budgie, and a disembodied Brock. “The video has me and Lol as Clockwork Orange Droogs Drumming on a Cadillac, while Fred Armisen takes a Sledgehammer to a WC,” notes Budgie. Armisen adds, “I loved being a part of this. I feel very lucky that I got to work with Budgie and Lol… It gave me a feeling of ‘drummers unite!’”
