Having fun is great. Bleeding Knees Club obviously realised this a while ago, and they seem intent on mobilising this manifesto in the shape of some rollicking tunes.
Formed last year, the duo (Alex Wall and Jordan Malane) will invite obvious comparisons to The White Stripes, but this is a sound that’s still more raw than even the most unhinged of the Whites’ material. Take ‘I’, a two chord lo-fi scuzz rocker that fizzes along in no time at all, or ‘Have Fun’, a does-what-it-says-on-the-tin pop-punk number that’s sweet with simplicity and perfectly short. They bring to mind the tragically overlooked Harlem, so if you liked those guys then give this a listen, and vice versa. Check out the video for ‘Have Fun’ below.
