If Songs of Praise was fuelled by pint-sloshing teenage vitriol,
then Drunk Tank Pink delved into a different kind of intensity.
Wading into uncharted musical waters, emboldened by their
wit and earned cynicism, they created something with the
abandon of a band who had nothing to lose. Having forced
their way through their second album’s identity crisis, they
arrive, finally, at a place of hard-won maturity. Enter: Food
for Worms, which Steen declares to be “the Lamborghini of
shame records.”

It marks a sonic departure from anything they’ve done
before, abandoning their post-punk beginnings for more
eclectic influences, drawing from the tense atmospherics of
Merchandise, the sharp yet uncomplicated lyrics of Lou Reed
and the more melodic works of 90s German band, Blumfeld.
For the first time, the band are not delving inwards, but
seeking to capture the world around them. “I don’t think you
can be in your own head forever,” says Steen. A conversation
after one of their gigs with a friend prompted a stray thought
that he held onto: “It’s weird, isn’t it? Popular music is always
about love, heartbreak, or yourself. There isn’t much about
your mates.” In many ways, the album is an ode to friendship,
and a documentation of the dynamic that only five people
who have grown up together - and grown so close, against all
odds - can share.
