Forever Cult – Codeine (Clue Records)
Forever Cult - Codeine

Release Date: Out Now

Ah, Forever Cult. Back again I see. Fresh from a clutch of live dates, the Leeds trio bring us their new single ‘Codeine’ which comes with a brilliantly disturbing video (for those Coulrophobics among you). The lurching, sinister bass line that introduces this one is brilliantly angular and, by the time clatters in, we’re in a place inhabited by the likes of Placebo, the Wrens, the darker moments of Young Knives and Idlewild. There are hints of US slacker rock and grunge to this sub-three-minute piece as well as a frenetic energy that brings the video to a climax to beat all climaxes. Great song but even better when coupled with the video.
