9 to 5 03:21
Tumble outta bed and I stumble to the kitchen Pour myself a cup of ambition Yawn and stretch and try to come to life Jump in the shower and the blood starts pumpin' Out on the street the traffic starts jumpin' With folks like me on the job from 9 to 5 Workin' 9 to 5, what a way to make a livin' Barely gettin' by, it's all takin' and no givin' They just use your mind and they never give you credit It's enough to drive you crazy if you let it 9 to 5, for service and devotion You would think that I would deserve a fat promotion Want to move ahead but the boss won't seem to let me I swear sometimes that man is out to get me! They let you dream just to watch 'em shatter You're just a step on the boss-man's ladder But you got dreams he'll never take away You're in the same boat with a lotta your friends Waitin' for the day your ship'll come in An' the tide's gonna turn and it's all gonna roll your way Workin' 9 to 5, what a way to make a livin' Barely gettin' by, it's all takin' and no givin' They just use your mind and you never get the credit It's enough to drive you crazy if you let it 9 to 5, yeah they got you where they want you There's a better life, and you dream about it, don't you? It's a rich man's game no matter what they call it And you spend your life puttin' money in his wallet 9 to 5, whoa what a way to make a livin' Barely gettin' by, it's all takin' and no givin' They just use your mind and they never give you credit It's enough to drive you crazy if you let it 9 to 5, yeah they got you where they want you There's a better life, and you dream about it, don't you? It's a rich man's game no matter what they call it And you spend your life puttin' money in his wallet

Round the gate Mouse out your mouth You, you feed the cat Sound stops your brain and it’s round again Five star rating But it doesn't count Oh there's your train It's like a melody That you don't like Excuse me! Oooooooooooooooooo Peak periods Ache in your back The, the silverfish Dusty within and you scuttle round Murmurs your twin And she says to go But there's no room in A touch of home Play on your own Excuse me! Ooooooooooooooooooo Insure and go A paper hat You, you say you don’t Sucks the life out The friendly energy Wind changes today It’s like a battery Fifty pence off So you pay the price You check the scene Excuse me! Ooooooooooooooooooo

about

Your favourite neighbourhood moles finally put something down for prosperity and have released their baby 6 track EP >>> ‘I HATE IT BUT IT’S FREE’.

Expect a joyful, stop/start sonic escapade through songs about cool, sexy mums, radicalising your children, battle cries about bodies, irreverence about capitalism monetising your life and selling it back to you, microwaves and breakups. You’ll laff, you’ll cry, things will never be the same again.

Sounds like lots of things emerging at once. Some people once said ESG and The Pixies but that’s q a big deal so maybe more like if they had some kind of immaculate conception who is in their emergent, angsts teen years…? But maybe not. Who can say.. Grab yaself a copy and find out!

I HATE IT BUT IT’S FREE is also available as a full colour, physical EP cut and folded by small mole hands. It is very special and comes in 3 different colours with lyric sheets, a poster and digital download code.

The digital EP is £6, the physical one £8 OR, SUPERFANS can pick up and EP + tshirt deal for £15 on independents United here: www.independentsunited.co.uk/product/i-hate-it-but-it-s-free-molejoy-ep

about

molejoy London, UK

Piss thunder drums - like when you’re being bullied at school and they’re pushing you to the ground, you can't get up and you miss your bus. We were surprised too. Guitar like a janky synth. Sparse with no room in it. Melodic bass, like soft bones climbing a rope. Everything fighting to get to the front. Sassy, sarky, sincere; because no-one else cares.

“It's different, it's unusual.”
