Unabashedly brazen new wave styled anthems come easy to She Made Me Do It. Their new E.P. never shies away from delivering a short sharp verse/chorus hit of adrenaline perfectly mixed with a dark lyrical realism. The band has become heavier and even more guitar driven while still retaining their electronic edge and knack for huge choruses.
Will Crewdson is Scant Regard. A full on electro-scraping, rockabilly dabbling, surf-guitar twanging industro-funk explosion in neon hues.
Also known for being the lead guitarist in Adam Ant’s band and The Selecter as well as his own Rachel Stamp and She Made Me Do It, Will really lets his roots show with this unique hybrid of guitar-driven, heavily beat-laden sci-fi mind’s eye soundtrack rage.
Scant Regard’s 5th album, Skipping Over Damaged Area has an overall theme of the apocalyptic destruction and devolution of the planet we live on. The demolishing electronic rhythms thread through its very core underlined by catchy riffs and almost pop-like choruses in places. Creating a sense of hope for a second only to plummet into the depths of doom the next. It’s an environmentally unsound joyride through the current human psyche.
