Swedish post-punks Viagra Boys have today dropped 'Ain't Nice', the first single from their sophomore record Welfare Jazz, to be released via Year0001 on 8th January 2021. 

On typical form with a grizzly bassline, jittery keys and bellowing horns, 'Ain't Nice' is complimented with a typically reckless and tongue-in-cheek video, which you can see below.  

Speaking on the influence behind the new album, frontman Sebastian Murphy notes: "We wrote these songs at a time when I had been in a long-term relationship, taking drugs every day, and being an asshole. I didnโ€™t really realise what an asshole I was until it was too late, and a lot of the record has to do with coming to terms with the fact that Iโ€™d set the wrong goals for myself.โ€
