The Last Dinner Party – Nothing Matters

Edge of Arcady | May 18, 2023

Thought the days of bands getting hype and magazine covers before releasing any music was over? That bands like Suede, The Libertines and Arctic Monkeys were an extinct breed, disappearing with the weekly music press? Meet The Last Dinner Party, fresh off of support slots with Nick Cave and The Rolling Stones with precisely zero records available in the public realm, that was until stupendous debut single ‘Nothing Matters’ dropped last month. And as with the aforementioned groups, the hype is every little bit deserved.

Striking out innocuously, vocalist Abigail Morris lends her classical sounding vocals to a calm intro, drifting along with synths, harp and lilting guitar, but the track soon takes an unlikely turn as the raunch advances and the song becomes a vaudevillian celebration of femininity and forthright, tender, loving lust with the incredible chorus refrain of “You can hold me, like he held her, and I will fuck you, like nothing matters”. It even includes a decent, old-fashioned guitar solo and the most satisfying brass backed outro since the 90s. Easily, easily our favourite thing since Wet Leg put out ‘Chaise Longue’.

Produced by the legendary James Ford (Arctic Monkeys, Foals, Florence and The Machine, Klaxons), ‘Nothing Matters’ was released on 19th April 2023 and came along with an incredible video, using the energy of films The Virgin Suicides and Black Swan as inspiration. You can give it a watch below:
