Just Listen: Clean Cut Kid – Deafening

Clean Cut Kid – Deafening

Words: Megan Berridge 

Clean Cut Kid could be poster boys for rock ‘n’ roll — the long hair and beards are starting to make more sense.  Their pre-tour single, ‘Deafening’, kicks ass with razor-edge fuzz and electric attitude. I choked on my breath when Mike Halls sings the word ‘bullshit’. I thought to myself “This is no Vitamin C!”

This leather-clad tune is studded with flashy, twiddly-dee guitar parts and drum fills that even Buddy Rich may have raised an eyebrow to. Amidst the dense thrumming of the bass, heavy drums and ferocious guitar, elements of the wholesome Clean Cut Kid still exist. Their sublime vocal harmonies sounding bolder and more resonant than ever before.

Somehow, within the mix of it all, they have even inserted a ten-second interval of what sounds like…well…someone having a wee. Why? Attitude. Because they damn well can.

They don’t care, and I don’t care. Capeesh?
