The Assist are the absolute epitome of a This Feeling band and their latest release is exactly the kind of North-of-Watford genius that makes London look like such a wanky place. Without a doubt, this is two songs smashed together with all the grace of an ice skating hippo yet the stark contrast between verse and chorus is just so ridiculous it works.
This Walsall foursome don’t exactly adhere to any of your general musical checklists, instead they bend and break the rules in a way that the middle classes would generally think ill of. They remind me of old school WCT faves The Bulletproof Bomb in that substance always comes well ahead of style and the idea of just going out, making music and having a great time is really at the heart of all this. It’s music like this that makes you realise there’s still hope for humanity after all, there’s not a care about the political goings on and the disgruntled apathetic masses – this is one for all those who want to go out, get off their heads and just dance around because they feel like it.
Go on, give it to me. Oh yes, that’s the spot. (Sorry, I don’t know why I wrote this bit…)
