I’m listening to these odd “Mancunians” for 72 hours and I can’t stop.
Their music is addictive. Truly hypnotic.
It’s not for the singing, that’s for sure (in fact, Ellie can’t sing for shit), but there’s something mystical about them, something strange, a sense of belonging.
From the band’s name to the imperceptible lyrics, everything is magical and mysterious, like the result of some secret society of outcasts that wish to change the world through howls and distortion.
The lyrics are a superb portrait of political and social awareness, soaked in the desire to achieve real freedom.
“ So maybe we will fail
fail to not see
maybe we will fail
but at least we will be free” from We Bros
“And if the world unites
sets the mountain alight
then outside your house will become your home” from Heavy Pop
