Released on Tuesday night (March 22), the music video for ‘Pardon?’ sees the band singing along to the track as they partake in photoshoots depicting them reading books and magazines.

The track – available on all digital streaming platforms today (March 23) – features fast distorted electric guitars, a funky bass line, dizzying drums and the lyrics “I don’t know what you mean” screamed repeatedly throughout the course of the song.
