London-based Muertos combine the songwriting of De Avis and Marc Crane to create their vintage garage sleaze. Now, following their acclaimed debut EP, they’re back to treat our ears to the title track of their upcoming debut album.
‘Suck It Up’ is a dark, gritty slice of desert-rock. Flowing with swooning harmonies, reminiscent of The Kills or BRMC, it builds to a heady climax of swirling, psychedelic haze. An immense sonic delight, it will suck you in and leave you longing for more of Muertos’ eerily addictive offerings.
Of the track, Marc Crane explains:
“The world is a bit strange at the moment and this song is about wanting to get away from it all. Away from the orange goblin in the White House, Brexit, horrible commutes and shattered economy. It’s that feeling, when you are wound up and the least helpful thing someone can do is tell you to calm down and it makes you want to bang their head into a table. This song exists on that space of tension, where you want to BURN EVERYTHING. There is no tidy resolution to this story – we don’t do happy endings. Suck it up!”
