New Music – Blackeye, ‘Spin’


We might currently be deep in a re-appropriation of the reverb-drenched sounds of the 90s but, as yet, no one’s thought to tackle the brighter, more anthemic side of that decade. Enter Peckham’s Blackeye, who’re bringing back the bubblegum punk of early Garbage and blasé cool of Elastica.

Fronted by Chloe Little, they’re as feisty as they are fun as this track ‘Spin’ shows. From this and the other songs we’ve heard (listen to another, ‘Growing Pains’ on Soundcloud), their attention’s clearly on making music that’s simple but absolutely, irresistibly massive. Keep an eye out for their first live shows – they play London’s Old Blue Last on November 26.
