Bad For Lazarus’ new single ‘My Muddle’ is due for release on 7th November by Shit Chic/Ngroove/ROM. Formed in 2010 in Brighton they are Rich Fownes, Dominic Knight, Richie Correia, Ross Crick, and Liam Dowling. They describe their sound as ‘motown hell’ and that sort of fits as it’s an interesting blend of rock, motown, and punk. In their own words:
“We like heavy, nasty pop with guitars; so that is what we do.”
What they don’t mention is their quickly growing reputation for their rock ‘n’ roll instrument smashing antics in their live shows.
‘My Muddle’ is a well named song as the odd orchestration adds to its chaotic feel , while a slightly discordant harmony underplays the off kilter vocals. It is an interesting and complex song with a catchy chorus that’s difficult to get out of your head. 7/10
