June 16th heralds the return of psychoutfit, Bad For Lazarus as they announce the release of their single, ‘Caught In The Twist’, off their upcoming debut Album Life’s A Carnival, Bang! Bang! Bang!, due for release 28th July.
Reception for BFL’s first single, ‘My Muddle’ back at the end of 2012, bordered on hysterical, as they watched the record’s video fly to number two on the NME’s most popular video chart. Equally, ArtRocker stuck their Single Of The Month flag right through the track, citing the song’s effects as such to “pleasure all the neurological senses.”
Giving their fans and followers even more cowbell this time round, ‘Caught In The Twist’ is a fiery frolic of pleasingly scuffed up vocal harmonies, Rich and Richie’s trademark multi-guitar meatiness, and newcomer garage ghoul, Andrew Knightley’s distinct psycho-surf keys. “When I started the band,” says frontman Rich Fownes, “I said I wanted it to be like Buddy Holly meets Slayer. Well, here you go.”
As ever, BFL’s audio drive, fuzz and thwack is epitomised through ‘Caught In The Twist’; like the Beach Boys teamed up with Bela Lugosi and cooked dinner for Sid and Nancy.
