OK, so I’m paraphrasing a little; however -- for a band which makes "existentialist style indie-pop" -- this is a record from which the take-away emotion is nothing so much as pure, unadulterated joy. Just never read the press release, I’d do well to remember that. ‘Every Bad’ is a UK DIY record, freshly-fired out of a Brighton bedroom belonging to Dana Margolin. This is a document of the no-longer private thoughts and musings of a British Seaside-dweller. And yeah, it’s brimming with fury, vitality and noise.

Track 3 on the review disc, ‘Don’t Ask Me Twice’ is packed with crescendos: of the drums, of the squalling guitars and the vocal screams of Margolin -- as if in direct competition with the waves crashing around the breakers and pier down the road. ‘Long’ is a beautiful noise, a chugger with an angry / celebratory chorus: “It’s a waste of my time! I’m wasting your time!” tailing off with the parting shot: “I’m glad it’s not me…”. Margolin’s voice is a characterful addition to the canon of pop-rock trailing in its wake -- one which, incidentally, has been celebrated by both BBC 6 Music AND Radio X… but you can probably overlook this. Because this record is genuinely great, thrillingly and life-affirmingly great.

Full of pristine pop-hooks and bonzer Brightonian angst. Winning.
