The Chichester alternative rock trio Social Haul are sharing their new propulsive track ‘This is All I Need,’ from their upcoming self-titled debut album set to release June 11th on FatCat Records.

Social Haul wiggle with a basement pub’s aplomb. Frontman Leigh Padley says the track rose from his bar escapades after band practices. ‘This Is All I Need’ “is about the positives of nurturing an adaptable persona. Here our protagonist recognizes that others will only open up to new ideas if initially they are rewarded sympathy for their current standpoint. Is it therefore fake or even wrong to hold malleable ideals to reach out to others? At the risk of an identity crisis our protagonist finds a good vantage point by sitting on a few fences. Observing everyone just plodding along towards oblivion as that is the destination of all available routes. Sort of like those films Green Street and Donnie Brasco.”

Padley’s introspection is layered beneath the bombastic cut. Social Haul marry a tight post-punk rhythm with harmonious guitar lines.

Social Haul will headline a five-date UK Tour this fall. ‘This Is All I Need” is available on all streaming platforms.  Pre-order their LP here and purchase tickets for September UK tour here.
