Birmingham trio Table Scraps create black-hearted garage punk which fully embraces the good, the bad and the ugly of rock’n’roll’s twisted lineage and various mutations. They were in our 2015 best of lists and have announced their new album Autonomy and shared a brand new track from it, Sick Of Me.
Of the song, Scott Vincent Abbott of the band has said “‘Sick of Me’ is about when friendships stagnate and minor annoyance gives way to mouldering resentment. Then juxtapose that feeling on top of a jangly sunshine pop backdrop (or as close to that as we ever get!). The echo of our breeze block 5m x 5m (and very un-soundproofed) room also perfectly suited the track’s claustrophobic feel. It’s dedicated to everyone just about keeping a lid on telling that one person how you really feel and cutting them loose.”
The single is out on vinyl and backed with ominous instrumental Mequinenza.
