Shrag are a decent quality indie-pop band from Brighton who take influence from the first wave of such outfits such as Shop Assistants and Tallulah Gosh add a touch of Huggy Bear here and there and a fuzzy churning sound which is just what you want from your indie pop bands. I’ve accidentally played the B sides first and I’m really impressed with them.
‘Obscenity Begins At Home‘ has a Fall-ish lollop with alternatively droney and twangy guitars and a great little mid eight bit which is as welcome as it is unexpected. Second tune ‘Gutless Wonder ‘ is a nice downbeat fizz through the the back roads of girl fronted indie pop with vocals which are sometimes chanted screechily but also heartfelt and it works superbly.
On to the A side and it’s a more electronic affair somewhere between Le Tigre and The Human League with fizzy synths, alternate girl boy vocals but it doesn’t really get going until the second section and is not a patch on the rawer more exuberant B side tunes. Still, its a strong single from a band we need to feature a bit more here at the Towers.
