Anybody who’s been paying attention to British indie right now should recognise the quite frankly brilliant Brighton label Cannibal Hymns by now. Having been behind the releases for Dream Wife, Our Girl and Abattoir Blues, they now welcome Georgie-garage rock extraordinaires Eat Fast into the family.
They’ll release their new EP ‘Immortal Kombat’ on the label and they’re pretty damn excited about it, says guitarist John Edgers; “we’re basically resisting the urge to spontaneously combust. And wet ourselves.” To celebrate that big news in a less disgusting way, they’ve shared a first taster of it, quite literally, with new song ‘Scrambled Egg’.
There’s no huge departure from their previous material, but that delightful blend of feedback, scuzzy guitars and warped vocals are sharper and punchier than ever – showing the group at their thrilling best.
“‘Scrambled Egg’ considers how an awareness of our own mortality is inevitably situated within the act of loving another person,” vocalist Adam Pearson said of the track. “Instead of falling into melancholy, the speaker insists it enhances love, rather than hinders it.”
