You can do a lot in just over two and a half minutes. We live in an age where time flies by at an alarming rate, and everything we want - we want it now. It’s that frantic and direct mantra that rings through with Bad Nerves and ‘Radio Punk’, searing with an urgency and primal kick to rip apart the rulebook and frolic in its confetti-stripped downpour. It doesn’t so much grab attention as it clears out anything else that may be floating about in your mind, and it’s all about the now.

From the minute ‘Radio Punk’ lights its fuse, there’s only one direction its going in. Sounding both incredibly fresh but comfortingly familiar at the same time, it’s a runaway train of panoramic heights and isn’t afraid to celebrate its pure pop heart. ‘Radio Punk’ wants you to tap away at it as you sit in another dry Maths lesson, it wants you to click that repeat button straight away, it wants you to have the words plastered on your mind from the first listen and more than anything, Bad Nerves want you. There’s moments when you click at the focus a band has, and in ‘Radio Punk’ intentions are clear - Bad Nerves aren’t afraid of throwing themselves right into the mix and blending themselves into something undeniably joyous.

Leave your hangups at the door, in just over two and a half minutes Bad Nerves lay out just why they’re a band destined to fill the mouths of anyone talking about the most exciting new music. If it feels this good right away, then just imagine how glorious things are about to become. Jamie Muir
