“A meteoric rising force who are able to intrigue, shock and utterly enthral.” - www.thelineofbestfit.com

‘Ideal’ is the terse new EP release by tense South London duo Scrounge, aka singing guitarist Lucy & and drummer Luke. It features four tracks of brittle, battle-hardened post-punk dramatics including springtime radio smash 'Purpose' and new single ‘Badoom’, which is powerful and straining with raw tension and released September 27th.

Much like 2018’s getting-to-the-point one word single releases ‘Etch’ and ‘Crimson’ ‘Badoom’ is a short sharp shock of DIY energy in hot pursuit of the sonic truth. Or a little bit like early PJ Harvey playing the local Sonic Youth Club. Or, in their own words: “Badoom represents the release of the underlying tension caused by the stress and mundanity of everyday life. Centred around a repeated lyrical mantra, churning guitars, and a rising sense of hysteria, Badoom is chaotic yet cathartic.”

‘Badoom’ arrives with the Scrounge’s first ever video, a terrific karaoke bar parody shot and directed by Amanda Tooke – artistic collaborator since the band met at Goldsmiths. The video was premiered here: getinherears.com/2019/10/18/video-premiere-scrounge-badoom/

This DIY appeal extends into promotion, organising and throwing day & night party ‘Haus of Scrounge’ in Deptford in September with a line-up that included friends and luminaries from the fertile South London scene such as Italia 90 and Jemma Freeman. Next up are these shows here:

“Oozing the duo’s epic, swirling wall of sound, with ‘Etch’ Scrounge have blown me away once again, marking themselves out as definite ones to watch.”
