Viagra Boys new single ‘Ain’t Nice’

“Trust me honey, you don’t want me, I start to scream if you look at me funny”

Viagra Boys – Ain’t Nice

This Stockholm post-punk sextet dropped the latest of their ‘Spastic, pulsating sounds from the sub levels of contemporary rock music‘ this week, in a story about one unapologetically vile individual.

Ain’t Nice holds all the groove and chaos we hope for whenever Viagra Boys release new music while displaying just how much they have grown as a band. While the PTSD disco outfit have maintained all the frankensteinian weirdness and funky hooks they showed us with 2016’s Consistency of Energy, they have not failed to develop, constantly growing tighter as a band and branching out into new sonic regions. This became prominent back in 2018 with the release of their first full length album, Street Worms, and by the looks of things they were only just getting started.

Not only that, the accompanying video reminds us of Viagra Boys’ never failing ability to make us laugh: Research Chemicals saw front man Sebastian Murphy literally climb out of a hole in the ground and dance around a restaurant full of oblivious people; Sports had him singing through a tennis match with a consistently bemused expression and the occasional smack in the head; now we get a panning shot of the same man making his way down a street and ruining everybody’s day. Watch out for a healthy dose of vomit, barfights, fire, and stun guns.

As for that ending, we are not entirely sure what is going on. If the band are to be believed we will find out in due course…
