Lacuna Common unleash stomping new track ‘Learn to Feel’

The Oxford quartet tackle toxic masculinity in their latest banger.

Our Sound of Summer 2019 winners, Lacuna Common, are back with a banger. Sharing new track ‘Learn To Feel’, the punky indie number explores the Oxford quartet’s experience with toxic masculinity.

Speaking on the song, frontman Alfie Franks explains, “It’s a song about seeing the men around our hometown feel like they need to compete with each other to be this ‘alpha male’ character. It’s a pack mentality and a poison and it frustrates me.

“I don’t really like to write quote-unquote ‘political’ songs, but I felt like I needed to put this sentiment across. We’re not ‘the political band or ‘the band that doesn’t want to be the political band’ - there’s enough of both knocking around at the moment. We just write about what’s in front of us, good or bad.”
