“It has a sort of Clockwork Orange-esque feeling about it,” says UNKLE’s James Lavelle to Mashable. “It follows the idea of taking the money and running — how vulgar and gratuitous we are financially at this point in time. The story follows the excesses of rich individuals preying on the weak and poor.”

“It is not intended as a direct broadside to any particular politician, though borrows from the iconography and styling of the Bullingdon set who reign supreme,”says director Tom Haines. “I suppose it’s a crude allegory, but in that sense it allows us to have a lot of fun with the scenarios and settings. The kind of fun that makes you feel uneasy in hindsight.”

UNKLE released Only The Lonely earlier this year on April 5th on their label Surrender All. All the songs on the EP are new and are headed up by collaboration with Nick Cave, lending his vocal and lyrics on the track ‘Money And Run’ (listen and share the track here). In addition there are great collaborations with Liela Moss (The Duke Spirit), long time UNKLE vocalist Gavin Clark and Rachel Fannan(ex Sleepy Sun). The EP is rounded off with a classic UNKLE instrumental.
