Following on from the success of debut single “Credit Card Babies” on Trouble Records, MEN, the Brooklyn-based band and art/performance collective consisting of core members JD Samson (Le Tigre) Michael O’Neill (Ladybug Transistor) and Ginger Brooks Takahashi (LTTR), are set to release their second single “Off Our Backs” on Monday 8th November on IAMSOUND Records.

The group began in 2007 with the DJ/production/remix team of Le Tigre members JD Samson and Johanna Fateman. With Le Tigre on hiatus, when the duo began to write new songs, it made sense to merge their efforts with JD’s other new project Hirsuite. JD and Hirsute members Michael and Ginger now comprise the core of MEN, with Johanna and artist Emily Roysdon contributing as writers, consultants and producers.

“Off Our Backs” is an addictive slice of electro brilliance, a sure-fire, 21st century pop anthem, with a soaraway chorus (“I’m/A tease/For nothing you can’t see”) and instantly memorable melody. The single comes in two formats with the following remixes on each:

7″ Vinyl

A1.  Off Our Backs

B1.  Off Our Backs (Jeppe’s Money Is A Major Issue Remix)

Digital Bundle

1.  Off Our Backs (Album version)
2.  Off Our Backs (Jeppe’s Money Is A Major Issue Remix)
3.  Off Our Backs (Lemonade Remix)
4.  Off Our Backs (Steven Bloodbath Remix)
