• desperate journalist Grow Up (CD, £7.25)

    label: fierce panda

    The Truth: noirishly nourishing North London alt.gothic rocksters Desperate Journalist release their second album, ‘Grow Up’, ostensibly eleven tracks of rocketing leftfield delights propelled forth with thundering rhythms, thunderously spectacular guitar and Jo Bevan’s thunderstruck vocals. Such is intense life with Desperate Journalist, one of the most potent, important DIY bands lurking on the underground scene right now. ‘Grow Up’'s campaign kicked off with the release of the heroically muscular ‘Hollow’ single, followed by the launch of ‘Resolution’ on New Year’s Day. If both ‘Hollow’ and the follow-up ‘Resolution’ capture a band working ever harder, faster, stronger then fittingly the ‘Grow Up’ album sees Desperate Journalist building on the sublimely tetchy mood swings of their 2014 self-titled debut and the tense interim ‘Good Luck’ EP by adding a fresh sonic sheen to their old school indie stroppings. “They are the best band in the country at the moment. You just don’t know it yet." Tracklisting
