Essex garage punk wrecking crew Eight Rounds Rapid seem to revel in the slimy boredom of UK life in 2k21.
Their songwriting touches on selfies and deluded celebrities, the mundanity and shallowness that permeates our fetid culture.
Musically, they’re an absolute riot – the guitarist is actually Wilko Johnson’s son, and their ultra-wiry garage punk carries a dose of The Fall’s brutal post-punk surrealism.
New album ‘Love Your Work’ is a cult success, with the likes of Everett True tipping their cap to the band’s blood-and-snot drenched songwriting.
Album cut ‘Onesie’ is an absolute riot, and it’s been given the full video treatment.
Airing first on Clash, it stars Avengers: Infinity War / Peaky Blinder actor Tom Vaughan-Lawlor as he traverses the sights and sounds of Southend life.
Forced to control the uneventful inconveniences of daily life, he’s hurled from the passenger seat of a Ford Racing Puma on to the Essex sea front.
Tune in now.
‘Love Your Work’ is out now.
