PENGSHUi have dropped yet another belter of a tune with their new single ‘IDKWYBT’.
MC Illaman: “’IDKWYBT’ is possibly my favourite concept track I’ve ever written. I used to have really mad nights in my local pub, proper mental. So many different characters both young and old bringing their attitude and dramas for everyone to see on a Friday night. We all know a person who would duck the round, we all know a person who had one too many who would then proceed to take it out on the bar staff and we all know someone that becomes a whole different person when they’ve had a few. I basically wrote about one particular weekend when everyone was out and getting on it. I used loads of my mates nicknames in the lyrics but then we came up with the idea of changing all those names to horse names from the races and delivering it like a horse race commentator. The local pub was almost like a church for some. A place where people from the area would come to palava while they empty their glass and drown their fears. It is a story of a night out on the lash with the twist of everyone being horses from the races basically.”
Vocalist Dave, AKA MC Illaman says, “The idea for ‘TIMY’ was born when Flux Pavillion said to me, “I like the way you talk, we need to make a list of things you say and put them in a record” which then became a list of my favourite things from the present and childhood. It slowly became an ode to the 90’s, our childhoods, our friends and their music. As the chorus suggests “this is me, this is my youth” is a nostalgic one for all those who have fallen in love with the 90’s fashion, energy and vibe in 2021 and those who grew and rose from that era.” Drummer Prav adds, “The video was shot around West London where Dave grew up and spent his younger years. Good old W10. This one is a belter and we love it! Another track we can’t wait to drop live on tour in February!!”
