Track Of The Day: Nasty Little Lonely – ‘Wicked Vicious’

Bristol-based Industrial Post-Punks Nasty Little Lonely have shared new single ‘Wicked Vicious’, and it’s a menacing blend of devious bass lines and venomous vocals. It’s the third single the band have released through Liverpool label, Loner Noise.

The song is an “anti-ode to two faced people, comparing the effects of negativity to unconsciously doing black magic”. Together, guitarist Ben, drummer Martin & vocalist and bassist Charlie have worked to create a spine-slicing new track, and the accompanying visuals are equally as malign as they are mesmerising.

Nasty Little Lonely have performed on line-ups alongside Future of the Left, Damo Suzuki, The Wytches, Idles, Part Chimp, Gnod, Mugstar, God Damn, Bo Ningen, Kagoule & Lydia Lunch, and will be on the road again soon.

Track Of The Day: Kagoule – ‘Bad Saliva’

Last week I was charmed for the second time seeing Nottingham’s Kagoule live at Islington Assembly Hall – a couple of years ago, I caught them there supporting PINS, and last Thursday supporting Drenge. Both times as equally engaging and enjoyable to watch, though last week I sadly didn’t bump into bassist Lucy in the loos.

Both times I’ve been lucky enough to see the trio live they’ve wowed me with their distinctive infectious sound and sparkling stage presence (and this time, drummer Lawrence earned extra brownie points for sporting a Slint tee), and both times I’ve been left eager to hear more from them. So, I’m in luck, as Kagoule have just announced the release of a brand new album later this year.

Taken from the album, new single ‘Bad Saliva’ is filled with whirring, jangly hooks as racing, calypso-reminiscent beats flow, with shades of GIHE faves Sacred Paws. Oozing a twinkling musicality and glistening scuzz-filled charm, it’s sure to provide some much needed sunshine to your ears on this gloomy Monday. Despite its somewhat unappealing name, ‘Bad Saliva’ is a truly delectable sonic delight.

Of the track, the band explain:

“Bad Saliva is a track about turning off the path you find yourself on; the temptation to make a change and the anxieties of then making it.”

 

Strange Entertainment, the upcoming album from Kagoule, is out later this year on Alcopop! Records.
