South London’s Phobophobes share the same DIY aesthetic and healthy cynicism for the commercial world as contemporaries like Fat White Family, Meatraffle, and Goat Girl.
And never more so on latest single The Never Never, an ode to the precarious survivalism of society’s most disenfranchised. Swirling through repetitive slogans, rubbishing the adverts that promise a life we can’t really afford as pastiche, and asking earnestly, “what separates those treading water to survive from the religious idols who struggled so similarly?”
It is a cracking track. Listen below. Pre-order the vinyl here.
