London group Social Contract announced their new EP “Buzzards Wake” last week, alongside the release of its lead single ‘Waterside Mews’.
If you’re new to Social Contract much like myself, then a good word to describe their sound would be ‘big’. There’s a clash of genres on display from indie, punk, metal and even shoegaze, as ‘Waterside Mews’ perfectly encapsulates their larger than life sound. With a crisp punk riff setting things off; Social Contract quickly diverges into their display of genre-blending on ‘Waterside Mews’, sounding like a clash of SCUM with Fat White Family, before carrying on for five minutes in a bustling haze of gloriously unfiltered rock. In a time where (in the UK at least) gigs still aren’t happening, ‘Waterside Mews’ will further add to the yearning to risk tinnitus for outstanding music.
“Buzzards Wake” is set to be released March 21st.
