Here's a great new song and video from Pop Crisis - premiered ahead of the official release of their new single 'Tell Me I'm Wonderful'.

Pop Crisis is the new project of The Leisure Society’s multi-instrumentalist and producer Christian Hardy, bass player Jon Cox and drummer Sebastian Hankins. The trio have recorded 3 EPs that they'll release through 2017.

Their video for 'Tell Me I'm Wonderful' stars comedian Dom Joly, who says: "When I heard the song I kind of instantly felt it was about the mask we all wear in public. I was going to do something really clever to highlight this but in the end just painted my face white and looked sad."

Hardy and Joly met at a recording of Radio 4’s Loose Ends where The Leisure Society were performing, leading to the band featuring in the recent series of Trigger Happy TV).  

Hardy says: "I wanted to make a video about the brittleness of modern men under all that bravado and bluster, and I thought Dom could do that really well.

"I sent him the song, then we met up for a ginger beer and had a very frank chat about anxiety and panic attacks."

'Tell Me I'm Wonderful' - the new single from Pop Crisis - is out on 16 June
