Under The Radar has been excitedly watching the rise of taunt post punk three-piece Social Haul , and today we are thrilled to hear third single “This Is All I Need” which drops ahead of a debut album scheduled for release on June 11th via Fatcat Records.

Led by guitaristsinger Leigh Padley, otherwise known as the bassist from TRAAMS, and including drummer Richard Trust and bassist Daniel William Daws; Social Haul impressed straight out the gate with initial singles “Wet Eyes” and “The Ease” – both of which felt like a barfly on the wall listening into pissed up rantings of a Dostoevsky character put to razor sharp riffs and disco beats. Their latest offering “This Is All I Need” is the drinker’s final slide into absolute apathy via an existential crisis, as Padley explains;

“Here our protagonist recognises that others will only open up to new ideas if initially they are rewarded sympathy for their current standpoint. Is it therefore fake or even wrong to hold malleable ideals to reach out to others? At the risk of an identity crisis our protagonist finds a good vantage point by sitting on a few fences. Observing everyone just plodding along towards oblivion as that is the destination of all available routes. Sort of like those films Green Street and Donnie Brasco”
