Sometimes you get an email from a band that already pretty much sums up everything we might want to say about a record in a couple of brilliant sentences.

Deeside’s Chupa Cabra is a perfect case in point. First, they describe their music as “nauseating, salivating, hypnotizing, no good sucker-punch-piss-yourself polystyrene agitator Blues“. Nice!

And they go on to describe their new single Violent Urges as “a word-salad murder-ballad set to the beat of a brick in a washing machine. It’s the urge to shout at the telly, it’s quitting smoking, it’s the space between the holes in your memory. Chupa Cabra’s new single is a call to trepan the masses. Bring your own anaesthetic.

‘Word-salad murder ballad’ might be our favourite song descriptor of the year.

Good tune too. Listen in.

 

Fun fact: The Chupacabra translates as literally “goat-sucker”; from chupar, “to suck”, and cabra, “goat”, it is a legendary creature in the folklore of parts of the Americas, with its first purported sightings reported in Puerto Rico.
