Cossack barbershop Blur. Finger-clicks. Jaunty pianos. Male choirs hoofing around. And Matt delivering the central Olympic-themed conceit: “Life’s a race/I’m gonna win/I’ll light the fuse/And I’ll never lose”. Pretty crude, but the self-belief on Muse’s sport-dedicated comeback soon goes beyond trying to gee up our team to a bronze.
