This is what you want: two-and-a-half minutes of rock ‘n’ roll confrontation that sounds like a cross between The Fall and The Jesus and Mary Chain, but all buffed up with an electronica sheen. So it harks to the past while looking the future square in the eye.
For me – given my undying love of The Fall – it’s a pleasure to hear something that is obviously influenced by them but not in thrall to them (like so many witless indie imitators).
Best of all though, this is a great reminder that, when done well, rock ‘n’ roll can still deliver all the thrills and spills.
