8/10 Mike Staff review, 01 November 2012
On this single here, Londoners Sic Defence play some snotty post-punk music with snarling vocals, hi-gain guitar jangle and a mid-paced punky clatter from the rhythm section. It’s got quite a ‘90s indie feel to it, reminding me of that band Stony Sleep for some reason. Quite garagey arrangements but a sense of grandiose ambition to the songwriting itself. It’s the kind of thing that fans of The Wipers or GOD will totally lap up, a bit yelpy, cannily arranged and deceptively simple pop songs. The screenprinted sleeve art is dead mysterious and stylish too, always a selling point in my book.
