Young British Artists - Salad Days

First thing: listen to that drummer go. Right from when we spotlighted them as tips for, cough, 2010 it's been evident they had a dark post-post-punk angle to bring to the nu-gaze party, and on this new single out on the 28th it feels like a constant pushing battle against the grain, more than a hint of The Walkmen subsumed in swirling pedal-pushing guitar textural swarms, sounding like they're racing against nothing so much as the passing of time.
