Reliably informed

A glorious comeback from Teesside-hailing hip-hop veteran Jister, Normal Island is a scathing and cathartic take-down of the current state of the nation, which finds the rapper/producer weaving some glorious wordplay which floats effortlessly over the brutal and pounding beat.

It’s a breakneck three minutes, in which Jister intricately paints a detailed portrait of his feelings about modern Britain with a dark sense of humour and a strong dose of wit, brilliantly conveying the exhaustion and frustration that so many of us will have felt in the face of the current political and social climate, in a way which succeeds at being brutal and direct but never ham-fisted or vitriolic. A bold and cathartic track indeed.
