Ahead of this weekend's Slam Dunk headline sets, Don Broco have shared a powerful new single, Uber.

Inspired by some particularly grim taxi experiences, the band explain of their latest Amazing Things track: “This was the first song we started writing for the album a few years ago touring the States. Within the space of a week three separate Uber drivers were openly racist in front of us, I guess assuming as white guys we’d share their views.

"Uber is about being angry about that, being angry that racists seem to be growing in confidence to speak their hate in public and it’s a reminder to me to call out that discrimination whenever I see it."
