Sue, 45, flies her Union Jack flag with glee – Britain has left the EU. “We’re going to get everything back” she exerts with confidence, unsure exactly what that entails but nevertheless 100% assured that it’s going to mean Jolly Old England is what it once was. Sue hasn’t got a fucking clue.
As Lumer wander the streets of ol Blighty in the dystopia of Post-Brexit Britain – the eerie turbulence that punctures their new single ‘Another Day At The Zoo’ is a more accurate perception of what’s to come.

Of course, the condemning atmosphere doesn’t subside for a single second – only intensifying as frontman Alex Evans becomes more and more apoplectic.

This is dystopia.
