Thee Alcoholics – the London 5 piece formed by ex Hey Colossus member Rhys Llewellyn have revealed 'It's So Easy' the second single from their debut Rocket album 'Feedback'.
Clocking in under 2minutes, 'It's So Easy' is Thee Alcoholics at their most upbeat and poppy but still frighteningly aggressive, check out the video above:
'Feedback' is released on 23 February – but you can preorder now on Ltd Edition Yellow Vinyl:
Cranky and cantankerous yet lysergically aligned, 'Feedback' is mesmeric rock with swagger, warped into sci-fi shapes by the spirit and sonics of bass and soundsystem culture. The psychedelic shapes here are redolent of the ur-klang of The Fall and the monolithic lurch of The Heads, the motorik malevolence less an uplifting trip to the heavens than a drill down to the earth’s core.
Discernible in these jackhammer beats, grimly murmured vocals and delirious dirges to certain heads may be the trash futurism of Chrome, the decomposed stomp of unsung legends Earl Brutus and the electro-punk attack of Six Finger Satellite, yet all of the above co-ordinates are waylaid effortlessly by a balls-out intensity and a fearsome intent on aural oblivion at all costs.
'Feedback' may be elemental and primal, yet this is no psych comfort-blanket nor retro-fetishism, rather a repetition-driven journey headlong into intimidating territory unknown. Get on board, and strap yourselves in for a bumpy ride.
