Art Trip and the Static Sound – EP2

(self-released)

Art Trip and the Static Sound - EP2If you have ever longed to hear La Düsseldorf covering The Damned‘s “Neat Neat Neat,” Polly Harvey backed by Wire and Hawkwind (at the same time!) or The Saints fronted by Lydia Lunch, then Art Trip and the Static Sound are the group for you. EP2 (I somehow missed EP1 – but will remedy that!) is full of concise, no-frills rock ‘n’ roll – driving rhythms, grinding riffs and arctic vocals coalescing into the coolest punch to the solar plexus you’re going to suffer all year. With five songs spread over a mere sixteen minutes, it’s all over before you can pick yourself up, dust yourself down and wonder what hit you.

Although you can download the EP from the group’s Bandcamp site, the limited edition physical CD comes with a rather fetching screen-printed cover that smells every bit as good as it looks! Sometimes even Londoners manage to come up with the goods; I imagine they’re probably quite something live as well.
