A watery themed blast of radgy scuzz comes courtesy of Newcastle trio Cheap Lunch. Taken from their self-titled EP released in August last year, God of Chill features a pummelling percussive assault behind ponderous bass riffs and howling echo-laden vocals, which culminates in a blast of feedback and squall.

“This song is about seeing the world through the Eyes of Poseidon, the God of Chill.” The band explain. “He is also the God of the oceans, seas, horses, rivers, winds, floods and drought. As the immortal ruler of the seas, Poseidon possesses the power to manipulate water, storms and lightning, able to create strong waves and violent storms to bring the rage of the ocean upon those who anger him. We didn’t want to write it, he told us to. What would you have done?”
