Noirishly nourishing North London alt.gothic rocksters Desperate Journalist follow up their spectacular November Kamio comeback show with big news a’plenty for the New Year. Firstly
the feisty quartet will headline London’s Scala on April 6th 2017
as per the ticket details below. Secondly
on March 24th they release their second album
‘Grow Up’. And thirdly
on January 1st 2017 they release a brand new single called ‘Resolution’. All is quiet on New Year’s Day? When you hear the bolshy powerchords and manic countdown chorus of ‘Resolution’ it certainly won’t be.

Alternatively
in the words of singer Jo Bevan: “The song was written in a hotel room after a New Year’s Eve party when I was feeling particularly peculiar
unable to drink and on a lot of codeine. NYE is obviously an unusually heightened time to feel completely out of the loop with a group and when that happens to me
like everything else I can't really cope with
I romanticise it into filmic fragments.

“The countdown to midnight was dramatized massively by the band we were watching (as is standard)
and I couldn't escape fixating on teenage thoughts like: how many cliched repetitive conversations/Fun Times you have with people on Significant Days of the Year
how emotionally awkward the midnight kiss was for so many of us
the people making big pointless romantic gestures
and the general warm frenzy of everyone else from the weird cold bubble of where I was. So broadly speaking
the song is about being detached and overstimulated.”

Such is intense life with Desperate Journalist
one of the most potent
important DIY bands lurking on the UK underground scene right now. The campaign for ‘Grow Up’ kicked off with the Kamio headline and the release of the heroically muscular ‘Hollow’ single
and if both ‘Hollow’ and the follow-up ‘Resolution’ capture a band working ever harder
faster
stronger then fittingly the ‘Grow Up’ album sees Desperate Journalist building on the sublimely tetchy mood swings of their 2014 self-titled debut and the tense interim ‘Good Luck’ EP by adding a fresh sonic sheen to their old school indie stroppings.

This means that they sound meatier and bolder
yet are still infused with a keen pop sensibility which ensures that ‘Grow Up’ contains at least five possible singles. ‘Grow Up’ is available to pre-order on CD right now
