Hacket & Knackered

Zoe Graham

Hacket & Knackered is a song that speaks of personal, social struggles, power dynamics, and anxieties. Like most people, I can find social situations difficult and can also find it hard to express my true emotions to those close to me. I wrote this song through the eyes of two foxes – which featured visually in the music video too. These two foxes (the main characters of the song) symbolise my own relationships and also act as a root to my home town Glasgow, which is home to a lot of these lovely furry creatures. I also used traditional language to further highlight my Glasgow roots as in the title of the song and later on when I use the old Scots word of Boorach which means - a mess!
