Premiere: Desperate Journalist – ‘Be Kind’

"A bundle of nerves, I am a veil of tears..."

Desperate Journalist are responsible for indie pop of a rather fine vintage.

All 12 string guitars, gentle but savage songwriting, and perfectly formed pop songs, the band match melodic appeal to some intricate lyricism.

New album 'Grow Up' is incoming, and it's worth filing alongside those early Creation cuts or even the more direct Sarah Records moments.

The band have shot a video for 'Be Kind', a song that rattles and roars with a spirit of its own.

The clip itself has a subtle glamour, a simple but well-shot (and enormously effective) performance that channels their innate energy.

Tune in now.

'Grow Up' will be released on March 24th – pre-order.

Catch Desperate Journalist at Scala, London on April 6th – TICKETS.
