7digital What we said: As one of the most socially-engaged bands of the past three decades, Manic Street Preachers’ continued existence remains a comfort in today’s turbulent political climate. And yet, the Blackwood band’s 13th studio album isn’t quite as jam-packed with polemics as you might expect. Sure, you’ll find them critiquing omniscient tech companies and the way that personal relationships have been severed by the EU referendum result, but elsewhere they’re drawing inspiration from Dylan Thomas and David Bowie. It transpires that the title ‘Resistance Is Futile’ references the trio’s unapologetically-melodic songwriting and expansive arrangements as much as it does the rise of ruthless regimes, a creative approach that’s abundantly evident from the bright opening bars of ‘People Give In’ onwards. In short, fans of This Is My Truth, Tell Me Yours should dig in immediately.
