In the wake of the ​recent UK General Election, Beldon Haigh has struck again with his latest single, Blah, Blah, Blah, a satirical anthem blending pop, rock, and punk. This track is not just a musical expression but a narrative of political disillusionment, encouraging listeners to engage actively in voting despite the chaos of current political dialogues.

Frontman Justin Skelton encapsulates the general public’s fatigue towards political rhetoric, urging politicians to prove their worth beyond mere words. The song, born decades ago and originally performed by Falkirk’s Breakfast Boyz, finds new life in 2024 with timely relevance and a touch of nostalgic charm. It features a music video set in Falkirk High Street, where a fictional politician from the Moon on a Stick party canvasses for votes, backed by a band wearing hyper-realistic masks of global political figures, adding a layer of humor and critique.

With this release, Haigh aims not only to entertain but to spark a reflection on the efficacy of political engagement. The song’s live rendition, planned for the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, promises a potent mix of energy, wit, and a call to action.

Beldon Haigh has long used his music to comment on societal issues—from consumerism to the longing for simpler times—through songs that provoke, satirize, and call for a return to values like fairness, community, and compassion. Blah, Blah, Blah is set to be a rallying cry for those tired of political platitudes, offering a musical escape into both laughter and thought-provoking discourse.
