Outer Stella Overdrive – Bad Times
Release Date: Out Now
I’m going to let the terrible band name slide because London collective Outer Stella Overdrive present something truly original in this day and age – a band that doesn’t fit the mould or dress to the blueprint. The band’s new single, ‘Bad Times’, has the gang vibe of the Libertines along with the scratchy guitars and muttered vocals in behind the main thread but there’s a healthy ska bounce in here that gives this a real party edge too. The accompanying video was directed by actress Sadie Frost and shows the band off as their natural party loving selves but then that might be because Frost is the mother of frontman Raff Law and you’re never uncool in the eyes of your mum.
