It was inspired by the Scottish comedian...

Croydon duo Frauds have shared their new single 'Money Honey'.

The band's second album 'Long Spoons' will land this summer, following a deal with renowned DIY redoubt Alcopop! Records.

A full tour is organised for September and October, with the post-hardcore group sharing a brand new single.

Out now, 'Money Honey' is a punchy return, dominated by that skewed riffs and the stop-start vocals.

Commenting on the single, vocalist and drummer Chris explains: “It was a riff that had been around the block a few times that never worked until we slowed it down and put a kind of disco beat behind it. The song almost wrote itself from a plethora of notes on my phone. These notes were written on daily commutes across London for work which informed the narrative.”

The video is a surreal, funny watch, one that echoes the way Scottish comedian Limmy would structure his vines. Frauds grapple with their limitations, and the hula hoop adventures that follow mirror the simplicity of Limmy's plasterer, say, or his radiator harp.

“Limmy is a huge inspiration,” adds Chris on the video, “and when the pandemic hit I was reading his autobiography. It dawned on me that he works with huge restrictions all the time and yet comes up with ingenious set ups with just a camera and himself. We wanted to embrace the restrictions, thus the hula hoops.”
