Tight as fuck punk trio Lady Bird, from Kent, have busted out a more than competent debut that bubbles with irreverence and balls-out bravado, while also managing to channel Blur, The Small Faces and Oliver!

The first four tracks are blistering, original and as swaggering as any decent punk band these days should be. Then the track Individualism drops, its lyrics rally against being generic and yet it sounds like every noughties pop punk anthem aimed at the ‘kids’ get the irony! The album is imbued with humour and sarcasm, remaining true, brutally honest and sorrowful, rawly acknowledging human emotion and loss in a brutal modern world full of contradiction and injustice. They’re gonna be cracking live, catch them when you can.
