Listen: Art Brut - 'Wham! Bang! Pow! Let’s Rock Out!' [New Track]

Words: Saam Das

Five barren years on from their 'best of' compilation, 'Top Of The Pops', it seemed fairly safe to assume that Art Brut were done and dusted. Far from it. We will soon hear the band's follow-up to their last studio album, 2011's 'Brilliant! Tragic!, out on the fantastic Alcopop Records no less. Hear the first taste of their new material, in the form of the spirited and predictably ludicrous 'Wham! Bang! Pow! Let's Rock Out! below.

It's been twelve years since I first wrote about Art Brut on this blog, and understandably the band have gone through some line-up changes since then. While charismatic frontman Eddie Argos (mid-noughties Morrissey, anyone?) still remains alongside fellow original members Ian Catskilkin and Freddy Feedback, drummer Charlie Layton from The Wedding Present is the latest new addition.

Regardless of their Sugababes-esque evolving line-up, the raucous 'Wham! Bang! Pow! Let's Rock Out!' shows that not much has changed at the heart of Art Brut. The angular guitars, talky vocals, witty lyrics, and gang vocals hark back to the very beginnings of the group, such as the iconic mission statement 'Formed A Band'. 'Let's Rock Out' again indeed.
