Cambridge alt-rockers STANDING LIKE STATUES have released a video for ‘Stupid Love’, taken from their 2020 sophomore EP, Reality Checkpoint.
The enticing single has already proven to be a hit with press and fans alike, including strong support from Kerrang! Radio’s Johnny Doom.
Stupid Love’ was also championed as one of the best tracks on the BBC Introducing uploader, following recent airplay on BBC Music Introducing in Cambridge.
The band comment on the new single:
“Love is beautiful, but it can also be painful. This is the ultimate ‘keeping it together’ anthem. It was written following the end of a near decade-long relationship, about dealing with the mixed emotions that come from all angles. It’s about fighting through the worst of it and realising that the end of one thing can be the beginning of something else.”

Formed in 2015, STANDING LIKE STATUES have supported We Are The Ocean, Decade, Fort Hope and Courage My Love, as well as being featured on BBC Look East and, more recently, BBC Introducing Cambridge.
Inspired by the likes of Taking Back Sunday, 30 Seconds To Mars and Biffy Clyro, STANDING LIKE STATUES draw from the greats of alternative rock to combine anthemic energy with soul-searching lyrics.
STANDING LIKE STATUES worked with renowned producer Romesh Dodangoda on their latest EP, which has forced the band to dig deep and harness the power to commit themselves to authenticity; rising above the blur of memes, trends, concepts and false personas which dominate modern life. Having learned to laugh in the face of adversity, there are no barriers to fight through and lots of love to give.
