Slum of Legs - "Begin to Dissolve" 7" (Tuff Enuff)

Slum of Legs Begin to Dissolve Tuff Enough
28 October 2014

Hailing from the bustling music scene in Brighton, UK, Slum of Legs finally deliver a debut single that shows a penchant for melodicism beside a sneering, aggressive taunt.

The A-side’s title track simultaneously recalls Big Black and The Fall with its steady beat and noisy demeanor, which eventually blend to a psychotic blast of punk rock fury. “Razorblade the Tape,” the B-side, displays the band’s penchant for synth-driven new wave melodicism in a swirl of Devo, Kraftwerk, Dexy’s Midnight Runners and XTC. It’s a promising pair of tracks that only hint at the possibilities of this young group.

It’s only the beginning, but Slum of Legs have already released a captivating record in their debut. The next release can’t come soon enough.
