In their song "Zayn Malik," Swet Shop Boys speak directly to brown youths feeling scared or disenfranchised by the rise of far-right populism. For the music video, Riz MC and Heems head to an apartment block in the dead of night to let off some fireworks and rip donuts with a tracksuited-up, modelesque crew. It makes an already defiant piece of work feel that much more important. Watch above and read our interview with Swet Shop Boys here. The group's album Cashmere is out now.
