Ed Zed wants to tell you about the new single from The Cravats and we’re not gonna stop him…
The horns of glorious delirium blare once more, sounding the arrival of a blistering new single from those Dada-damaged delinquents, The Cravats.
‘Shy’ finds our boys in black injecting a dose of warped Motown into their art/anti-art punk sound, though far from being a three minute celebration of love, the track in question celebrates what it means to be a shrinking violet in a world of tall, imposing weeds.
Whilst ‘Shy’ is at once a frank admission of social reticence to which so many of us can relate, it can also be read as a sardonic swipe at the so-called ‘alpha male’ posturing that much of the world seems finally to be sick of.
The darkly psychedelic b-side ‘Good for You’ pillories the I’m-alright-Jack mentality certain members of the ‘haves’ branch of our polite society cling to so fervently – all too poignant during these increasingly desperate times.
This spectacular 7 inches of plastic is waiting to be devoured right now, in anticipation of The Cravs’ new album which drops in early 2020. Get ur freak on.
