With the right ingredients two plus two can equal five.

Banger


The Cribs have been talking about their sessions with Steve Albini for years. First mentioned back in 2011, it’s no great shock they caught the imagination of anyone with the slightest spark of imagination.

On one hand, there’s a band who have built their reputation on crafting pop gems out of ramshackle brilliance, on the other a man with a record of laying down some of the most important records of that ilk of the last 30 years. They should be a match made in heaven.

So more than five and a half years since they were first mentioned, we finally get the first taster of what they’ve been cooking up. ‘In Your Palace’ doesn’t disappoint. Grungier than anything the Jarman’s have provided before, it’s a garage punk banger that’s still got that sparkle in its eye. In part returning them to their roots, in part taking them somewhere absolutely new, it suits The Cribs perfectly. Proof that, actually, with the right ingredients two plus two can equal five.

Sam Fender is a man on a mission. Already beating current ‘biggest noise on the block’ Lewis Capaldi to a Brit Award, as his debut album nears its much-anticipated arrival, the sky really is the limit for an artist not short of stuff to say.
