Indie pop-punk quartet Martha have released a video for their new single Please Don’t Take Me Back.

“The past was absolutely terrible. Don’t get us wrong, the present is also absolutely terrible, but that almost instantly becomes the past anyway, so we can quickly file it under ‘the past. The really good news is that the future appears to have been totally cancelled by the loathsome politicians, oligarchs and CEOs hell bent on destroying the planet and all life on it, so we probably won’t have to put up with this garbage for much longer anyway. Please don’t take me back,” says the band on the inspiration behind the track.
The video was directed by Sonny Malhorta and features Laura Kovic as ‘Daniel from Martha’ due to unexpected, important duties elsewhere. The band explain: “In a genuinely terrifying twist of fate, just before we were due to shoot the video, [band member] Daniel’s partner Steph unexpectedly went into labour a whole seven and a half weeks before her official due date. Daniel therefore does not appear in the video. If you look very closely you might see how low-key terrified the rest of us look, which sort of fits the tone of the song. Austin Ellis Bartle was born on the 21/10/21 and after a slightly bumpy start, is now a healthy, happy little fella.”

Martha have also announced they will be releasing a 7″ on 24th June via Specialist Subject. The b-side to the release is a cover of indie-pop outfit Allo Darlin’s track My Heart Is A Drummer. The release is available to pre-order now.
