Still bludgeoning their way into the nation’s hearts, Gallows have come up with a magnificent follow-up to ‘Staring At The Rude Bois’: a completely uncommercial, lacerating blitz of razorwire riffs, clattering drums, skew-whiff rhythms and bug-eyed gravel-gargling vocals. It’s impossible to make out the lyrics, but it’s safe to assume that there’s something unpleasant going on in there, and you’ll have fun trying to ascertain what the swear words are in the ‘Dirty Edit’. Perhaps that’s a game you can enjoy with your parents.
