For The Breeders business has just picked up.
Everyone loves The Breeders. You can hear echoes of their sound in all the good stuff, from Shame’s dark punk thrills to Wolf Alice’s frenetic rushes of abandon. There’s not much point in being much loved though if you can’t cut it anymore. Fortunately, Kim Deal and co have returned with a stone cold certified banger.
Recorded by the classic line up who made 1993’s ‘Last Splash’ (y’know, the one with ‘Cannonball’) one of the best alt rock albums of the 90s, ‘Wait In The Car’ is prime quality Breeders and a fitting comeback for their first piece of new music in 8 years.
Ushered in by an exuberant cry of ‘Good Morning!’ it does all the things you’d want a Breeders banger to do. Mixing surfy guitars, idiosyncratic lyrics and hooks a plenty, it’s short, sharp and stunning. A welcome shot in the arm for a band invigorated by years of touring the classics and ready to shake things up again.
‘I’ve got business’ shouts Kim as the track careers towards its frenzied conclusion. For The Breeders business has just picked up. Martyn Young
