Fit to burst with glorious bombast and brilliantly intricate songwriting, Dragged Through The Streets is an LP replete with stylistic left-turns and a gorgeously widescreen scope. Entirely self-performed and self-produced, it finds Paul Jeans returning to the guise of The Shooting Of (five years on from the brilliant Analogue Heart) to take sledgehammers to matters such as imposter syndrome and online trolling through a hyperkinetic lens which allows the Northumberland-based artist’s talents to truly shine.

From the anthemic delight of Forced To Pretend and Don’t Matter Anymore through to the majestic introspection of Drifting On That Wave and Underground, the LP is another refreshingly diverse, satisfyingly consistent and relentlessly entertaining body of work from one hell of a talent.
