Bring in The Riff Raff. Their new song “Your Company Corrupted Me” invites a multitude of opinionated debate (particularly relevant in the current political climate), whilst NYC loves London offers one of those songs that causes even the most conservative among us to throw out a few cheeky foot taps. The line: “ I’m so sorry, that I’m such a moron,” proves particularly refreshing.
The post-punk, melodic anthems of Alex Thompson, Harry Robinson, Paul Noels, Richard Soward and Andy Hill, manage to lasso complete attention and cause those who haven’t yet heard of The Riff Raff to demand why. Already infiltrating Europe, the band featured in the documentary ‘Strummerville,’ directed by the award-winning Don Letts, and channel 4 music series ‘Strummerville Session,’ as well as attending the CMJ music conference in New York and headlining BBC introducing at Glastonbury.
“Your Company Corrupted Me” will set something alight. Watch this space.
