DEADLETTER have today shared a new single, the vitriolic, driving ‘Degenerate Inanimate’. With unpredictable post-punk melodies and dry, narrative-oriented lyricism, the track follows recent single ‘The Snitching Hour’ and 2022 EP ‘Heat!’. The title is a concept coined by the band themselves, meaning ‘someone you might comes across who is in no way what they say they are’.

Discussing the track’s background, frontman Zac Lawrence says: “‘Degenerate Inanimate’ alludes to the feeling of betrayal when someone close to you is revealed as dishonest to the bone. There’s a unique form of unease which arises from having your basic intelligence mocked, as they reveal their complete lack of decency”.
