...a tenacious mood and bitterness

At first the debut single from North London band The Wireless is like the generic indie pop made popular by The Kooks but very soon a tenacious mood and bitterness becomes apparent.

Supposedly about singer Felix Bushe’s illicit affair with the girlfriend of a member of a “Highgate and Crouch End” middle class rap collective, the song is somewhat predictable yet brilliantly fired by swinging moods of indignation, regret, pity and contempt. You may, rightly, care little about the bed-hopping shenanigans of some musicians with an N postcode but the passion in the music is worth staying tuned for.
