Organised Scum – Basic [Review]

Since forming in 2016, Organised Scum have gone from strength to strength and are ready to unleash their new laid back record, ‘Basic’.

The links to Mac Demarco are clear as you saunter through the record in the same way as you would listening to the Canadian maestro. It has all the great elements of alt pop/rock traits, fusing an instantly catchy bass hook with dreamily echoed guitar licks, yet there is a bolder sound to Basic, stylised in a similar way to something Grizzly Bear or Wild Beasts would produce. The way the vocals wallow through and slightly intensify in parts, further add to the atmosphere surrounding the tune, creating a marvellous easy listening experience.

Just by listening to this it is easy to see why the London based trio have already become recognised by various music outlets. They have done it their own way too, as there is very little social media presence which, in this day and age, is an almost impossible way to become recognised. Yet, you have to commend their decision, they have done it the ‘old fashioned’ way, and it has clearly paid off as they have already received support from the likes of NME, Clash and BBC 6Music, to name a few.

Often gigging in the UK, ensure to watch out for these lads because if their single is anything to go by, it will be worth your while to go see. ‘Basic’ is out now and you can check out their earlier stuff on all the good streaming sites.
