Need an addictive new punk rock jam for your Wednesday? Of course, you do. We all do. Look no further than the new track by Mattress Food titled “Burn Yr Idols”. Stamped as the debut studio single from the foursome headed by Sami Rahman out of Philadelphia, the band has developed a sound that’s dominantly their own. Punky guitar riffs and a solid beat makes this number one to have on repeat.
The band had this to say about their debut single: “‘Burn Yr Idols’ is basically an indictment of toxic behavior – racism, homophobia, toxic masculinity, transphobia, etc. It was written in 2017, in response to the wave of sexual misconduct allegations of well-known figures. I think that we need to seriously re-evaluate the past and the way it has been viewed and taught, and I like the idea of rebirth through fire, like a phoenix (shoutout Harry Potter).”
