- My Life as a Beast and Lowly Form by Human Hair
Here’s the debut album by UK indie rock’s new big hopes, Human Hair, who boast a Lovver amongst their ranks and specialise in a sparky Les Savy Fav-meets-The Fall post-punk full of fuzzy guitars, fizzy drums, cheeky repetitive lead guitar licks over cleverly shifting chord sequences, and a nonstop blast of dramatic invective from singer Jack Lenton.
It’s not a complicated formula but it’s one they execute to perfection, the mid-paced melodicism offset by a focused, driving intensity and crunchy swagger that makes you think “this is exactly what indie rock is meant to sound like, why don’t more people do it like this?” It’s snotty and single-minded in an almost Pissed Jeans-ish way but under that nihilism are a stack of genuinely excellent tunes which songwriting-wise have more in common with Canadian post-punk upstarts Fist City. Really cool stuff anyway, I want to listen to it repeatedly.
