  • Listen: Silver Arm “Scatterbrainzz”

    London’s post-punk quartet Silver Arm return with their brand new digital-only single “Scatterbrainzz“. Leon Forde‘s jagged, snarling guitar sets the pace here, as he and bassist Tom Answer lock horns for a little go around the mosh pit, while vocalist Gareth Hughes presides over the riot with strident tones and his strychnine howl. Using post-punk’s angular musical structures, with grunge’s […]
