Shrag – Forty-five 45s

May be just me but is Brighton beginning to push Brooklyn for the title of most creative neighbourhood in the world? Perhaps not but I can’t stop running into great little bands from that neck of the woods. Shrag are the latest and within seconds you may detect a certain Ting Tings direction. The thing (ting) with Shrag though is that there are 5 of them which affords more opportunities to flesh out the sound. In saying that ‘Forty-five 45s’ peddles an even personality, buoyancy comes by way of a direct riff with singer Helen appearing like a bottle rocket with a short fuse. All very indie (a song about vinyl singles, yay), all very predictable but about as welcome as voluminous snow flakes towards the end of December. It almost pains me to say it but on this evidence you just can’t beat a good old Shrag. KD
