Future Of The Left - Manchasm

Future Of The Left promise to eschew the genres in the same way that Enter Shikari and Klaxons hurdle over them. And they’re certainly razor-sharp smart, in the same vein as Shellac and Mclusky. The lead track has keyboards – woo – which set it apart from its peers, though. And strangely idiosyncratic chants and rounds, from “Colin is a pussy” to “all he ever wanted was a detonator”. And ‘Suddenly It’s A Folk Song’ on the flipside is even more phenomenal with its dense harmonies coming out of nowhere. This lot rip up rock in the same way that Art Brut piss all over schmindie – it’s a real belter.
