Having blown us away numerous times with both their incredible live show, and singles such as ‘Where The Boys Are’ and ‘Speak To My’, Brighton trio CLT DRP have now returned to blast into our ears with a seething new offering.
A magnificent, whirring electro-punk cacophony that addresses the complexities of family ties, ‘Like Father’ is propelled by propulsive, clattering beats and scuzzy, ferocious hooks providing the backdrop for the gritty angst-driven power of Annie Dorrett’s vocals. Driven by a swirling, impassioned energy, it oozes a poignant breathtaking force, showcased perfectly in this immense frenetic remix by fellow Brighton faves Sit Down.
Of the track, Dorrett explains:
“‘Like Father’ is the most heartfelt song on the album, although it might not sound like it through the shouting. I wrote this letter to my dad on the plane one time after I left Toronto, and instead of giving it to him, I put it in a song… I thought it would be nice to have a song with an honest kind of dialogue about how he continuously influences me in a good way, even if we don’t tell each other all that often. I find that when talking to a lot of my friends the majority have a difficult time opening and communicating with their fathers. Whether it’s their generation or just toxic masculinity it’s still interesting that there’s a bit of a common theme.”
Without The Eyes, the debut album from CLT DRP, is set for release in August.
