Reliably informed

The perverse silver lining to any time of governmental corruption and incompetence is the response of musicians. With Bosko Green’s new release, it’s hard to dispute that all of the pre-requisites of great oppositional music are present. Opener State of Decay is suitably anguished and anthemic, with a lovely melody and progression to go with it.

1933 may be too literal or histrionic for some, but that is the danger of political music; you can’t, nor do you wish to, please everyone. Hummingbird strays from pure politics for a moment of beautiful elegy, while A Truly Noble Gas will get stuck in your head for days – it’s stupidly catchy for a song with such vitriolic content.

Well worth listening to for anyone in a profound state of dissatisfaction with the world at present (which is likely all of us).
