PREVIEW: Cruel Hearts Club, Blame Me Too

Written by David Sinho

So far, 2020 has been a big year for Cruel Hearts Club, a ‘diva-grunge pop-trio’ from London consisting of sisters Edie and Gita Langley as well as drummer Gabi Woo. The band have already achieved impressive accomplishments such as a sold-out single launch show at The Lexington in London as well as supporting huge acts in 2019 like Sting and The Libertines. Cruel Hearts Club’s new single ‘Blame Me Too’ shows that the band have no intention of slowing down with their own brand of 90s inspired garage-punk.

"The band have already achieved impressive accomplishments such as a sold-out single launch show at The Lexington in London as well as supporting huge acts in 2019 like Sting and The Libertines."

From the opening fuzzy guitar chord stabs to the infectious chorus, ‘Blame Me Too’ doesn’t let you off easily, especially with the tight rhythm section driving the song all the way through. Every second of this track is not only catchy but addictive. When singing about topics such as jealousy and heartbreak, the band possess vocal style screams attitude and style that shows power and confidence in the heartbreak.

Cruel Hearts Club is definitely on course for much more success and ‘Blame Me Too’ is just another excellent example of what they can do to get you hooked to their exquisite frenzy of noise.

Blame Me Too is out on 22nd May.

REVIEW: The Young Hearts, ‘The Modern State’

After a smattering of EPs across over five years, rising punk band The Young Hearts have finally dropped their debut album. According to frontman Craig Lawrence, the plan for this year was to power through the struggles facing so many bands right now and release another EP, but “after realising it could be the final release […], we decided that an album would be the most productive way for us to say everything we wanted to”.

Cat SFX and the hopeful return of punk.

Alan Mcgee told the NME that he wanted to sign “cocky little fuckers” for his Creation23 label again. This may apply to wannabe wee Gallaghers and the likes, but the “dark fruits” stereotype doesn't really do justice to his recent signing of culture critic, mental health advocate Cat SFX. Lead singer Caterina Speranza already has a fair amount of music industry experience. Having previously fronted a band called The Vincent Fiasco who opened for Interpol, Cat has come back 13 years later with more to say. According to McGee, “In a different time, she’d be a punk hero.”
