ALLUSONDRUGS - SINGLE REVIEW

Allusondrugs - Nervous (Clue Records) 
Allusondrugs - Nervous

Release Date: 28th April 2014

Those clever, clever types at Clue Records are back with one of their thoroughbred acts as Allusondrugs are back with their latest single. 'Nervous' opens with some doom laden drums followed by the bellowing of the devil's bagpipes played out on guitar and bass. Allusondrugs could have been an 80s pop-goth band if it weren't for their tendency to get all doomy on your ass. They could have been a metal band if it weren't for their propensity for indie lyrics and quiet verses. In fact, these boys could be anything they want as long as they keep banging out the monster sized riffs and heavy, heavy beats. As a little bonus, this single also features 'Handicapped' which is something like Black Sabbath doing Arctic Monkeys covers as produced by 90s rockers Kerbdog - in other words, it's bonkersly awesome. Finally, there's an acoustic demo of 'Nervous' which adds a whole new layer to the song and puts them in the same league as Reuben, a band I utterly adore for their ingenuity and complexity.
