Why aren’t Martha the biggest band in the world? They’re one of the most thrilling and likeable live acts around, and their 2014 debut Courting Strong was a brilliant riot of socially aware punk pop. And its follow-up? It’s fantastic, of course. What else could it possibly be?

From the ever-so-sweet supermarket aisle love story of Precarious and the outrageously catchy Do Whatever, to the poignantly arse-kicking Ice Cream And Sunscreen, Blisters In The Pit Of My Heart is a marvel.

It’s the perfect blend of fun and smart – as youthful and vibrant as a record ever gets, but also brimming with the incisive wisdom which makes Martha so damn important.

Their band could be your life.
