NARCS -A Thinking Animal | Album Review


You know, the UK’s been a bit shit lately. Recently we held a vote to decide whether or not we should remain within the EU which saw Leave just scrape victory. This was a referendum coming from the minds of people who immediately said that £350 million going to the NHS – the main statement behind the push to leave – was a “mistake” the next day, and wasn’t going to happen at all. This is then followed by said people stepping down from their roles in Politics, and now we’ve ended up with a new PM and the nation’s brightest hope, Jeremy Corbyn, constantly battling against people of his own party wanting him out.

Hot New Bands / #2 / NARCS

Welcome to a brand new series called Hot New Bands! Yes this is probably a staple of all other music websites and blogs out there right now but with the amount of submissions received and connections made over the last three years of trying to write coherent sentences about good music I thought it was about time for me to jump on the bandwagon too. It’s an idea that’s pretty self-explanatory – this is all about showcasing some of the best new talents currently producing music at this very moment. You may have seen various reviews of losing my shit over a certain band so now I wish to make my voidance of literal bowels a little more regular.

Workout by TRASH | Track Review

WHEN: 05.03.2016TRASH - Workout
WHERE: Clue Records

I’ve got a little bit of a bromance going on with Clue Records. These guys have been responsible for some very exciting acts that have emerged over the last year or so. One of those bands is TRASH, a four piece who’s debut EP Urban Glow sits very proudly on my wall of CDs. The band has very recently released their new single Workout, and it is very good indeed.

TRASH have decided to head towards a poppier route with this new track. Instead of keeping things very murky they have thrown a lot of accessible melody to accompany their traditional formula of performing thick walls of grunge-y guitars. This poppy introduction seeps throughout the rest of the song as simple harmonies are sprinkled on top of some delightful melodies to create a really sweet treat from TRASH. Who knows something so sweet and edible could be inside some TRASH. Workout is a really solid little pop tune and I would be totally fine if the band explored this more accessible sound for future releases. Nice work guys.
