Kent 5 piece ‘WE ARE BANDICOOT’ have followed up their debut 2015 EP with the release of cross boundary single ‘Limitations’. In support of the ‘Limitations’ single release the band will be heading out on the road for a mix of headline shows and support slots, including dates with Moulettes, Broken Records and Heg & The Wolf Chorus. Lyrically, Limitations explores what lead singer Simon describes as a ‘small minded culture’ that is spreading through young people in Britain – hatred and prejudice towards certain social groups and a lack of desire to achieve greatness.
We Are Bandicoot push us through the mixer like an abused ingredient. Rolled in crumbs, baked gently, burnt hard, licked and grated, split and cut. Suckle my pig, depth charge emotions. Don't forget to eat me, but push it in my face, gorge on this band, so that the juices run over your cheeks and well in your ears.
Open and rangy, their buzz slices through with free lines, pylons that reach into the distance. The sound is a bouncy-ball soup of influences that are not worth throwing a net over here. Why capture these dancing joys.
Krakatoa Kinkitoa, Crackerjack smack.
