Totally Unicorn Release New Single 'Trust Fund Glee'

Embracing their 9th week of pants optional living, Sydney punk outfit, Totally Unicorn make the best of life in lockdown and unleash their belter new single, Trust Fund Glee, ft Kirsty Tickle from Party Dozen on sax and Dan Cunningham from ARSE on guest vocals. 

On the track guitarist, Aaron Streatfeild says “Trust Fund Glee is an ode to anyone who has fought for every inch of ground on the road to achieving their dreams, only to be surpassed by someone fortunate enough to have financial backing. It bemoans those who buy their way through life.

They say money can’t buy happiness, but it sure can bypass plenty of its trials and tribulations. Sure, earning your crust has its benefits. Some say it builds character, but that exertion and gain isn’t without its downside: a sore and swollen ego; a malnourished bank balance; a pessimistic outlook; an unstable and uncertain future. Someone always has it worse, but life ain’t so bad when it’s on your family’s tick.”

Vocalist Drew Gardiner adds "This is a Fuck you to the people that never have to worry about tomorrow"

The new single is the first taste of new music to come in 2021 and is accompanied by a video that was shot in a race against tightening COVID restrictions, which saw the band rally to execute PLAN B. 

Streatfield recalls "Dean came up with the original video concept and it featured a much larger scale production. A few weeks before shooting, the COVID situation in Sydney began to worsen, with another lockdown imminent we scrambled to put together a contingency plan. With most of the concept remaining, I shot some green screen footage and sent it off to our friend Carl Whitbread [of the Sydney band Lo! and graphic artist extraordinaire] to turn our humble footage into the vision Dean had originally intended. As with any musician or band over the last two years, COVID has stomped over most of our plans, tours and releases. So, in some ways, this clip is a testament to overcoming the doom and gloom the pandemic has held over our lives."

The band had planned to announce an east coast single tour to celebrate the release, however, everything on the touring front is a total shitshow, for the moment, stay tuned.
 Trust Fund Glee is out today on Farmer & The Owl/BMG and is available on all streaming platforms here
