As the music industry fights to return from the brink, NewPagansabandon chaos for a brief moment, in search of hope. ‘Better People’ celebrates our ability as humans to pull together, create communities, and look after one another – the band’s attempt to write a song that uplifts, gives hope, and just says you can be better.
Written during the grip of socially isolated lockdown, ‘Better People’ began with singer and lyricist Lyndsey Mcdougall celebrating the joy of music with her children. Realising the playlist they’d created had an inter-generational hopeful appeal, Lyndsey and NewPagansset to writing their own new uplifting anthem.
‘Better People’ is the result – recorded in the Glens of Antrim in Ireland by the band and self-produced, NewPaganscontinue to expand their DIY position. A glorious listen, recalling elements of The Xcerts, The Menzingers, and Muncie Girls, it’s a strong statement of intent from the five-piece – given that extra heft with a mix by Sam PettsDavis (Radiohead, Warpaint, Frank Ocean).
Following their European tour with Skunk Anansie earlier this year, NewPaganswill bring their notoriously electrifying and explosive live show back to Europe to celebrate the new release, and will join English folk-punk heroes Frank Turner and the Sleeping Souls on four dates across Germany. NewPagans will also be playing Glasgow’s Poetry Club on 8th September and London’s Courtyard Theatre on 9th September. ‘Better People’ follows a stellar two years for NewPagans, following their globally-critically acclaimed debut The Seed, The Vessel, The Roots and All. Strong support from Stereogum, Kerrang!, The Independent, NPR and more helped mark the Irish group as a band to sit up and notice.

Lyndsey McDougall – Vocals
