Stu Plimsoles + Paul Artrocker DJs
Derby based garage-pop post punkers PET CROW explore the struggles of modern life on their second LP ‘Take The Edge Off’. This is another tricky second album, but not in the classic sense. It’s a work of catharsis, an expression of personal problems and mental health issues experienced throughout a turbulent time for the band. Anxiety, depression, drug addiction, OCD and ADHD are all tackled as they speak from direct experience.
‘What We Doin’?’ blasts forth, taking on stagnation and a lack of focus that can render one inactive. Their blend of tight, funky rhythms, punk riffage and surf rock party vibes make for an enthralling listen that makes everything feel better.
