FOREVER CULT - SINGLE REVIEW

Forever Cult - Yasmin/OceanOceanOcean (Clue Records) 
Forever Cult - Yasmin/OceanOceanOcean

Release Date: 3rd November 2014

Those clever types at Clue Records are releasing another cracker in the shape of the new single from Huddersfield lads Forever Cult. This double-A sider starts with 'Yasmin', a tune that ones with a desperate, breathless and guttural vocal scream, the kind only a man with a broken heart would come out with. The stabbing guitars and snappy drums are pure garage-punk but the low slung grunge bass and that strained vocal was conceived in Seattle. 'Ocean Ocean Ocean' is the other half of this release and it has a more Britpop feel with slouched guitars, floppy hair and some Swim Deep meets the Beach Boys style 'ooh oohs'. The mix of styles between indie, grunge, pop, punk and garage is a heady one but I think Forever Cult have just about mastered it so expect big things in 2015. Maybe even an album....
