The Truth: ‘Leaking Drains’ is the brand new single by hectic South London duo Scrounge, aka singing guitarist Lucy and drummer Luke. Their first release since the brilliantly brittle ‘Ideal’ EP from the end of 2019, even by the terse twosome’s normally abrupt standards this tune hurtles by in a covid-sweating, poet-punking panic. Help the raged, indeed.

“This track is designed to be short and sharp, both lyrically and instrumentally,” they pointedly explain. “Living standards and life expectancy have dramatically dropped for the majority of ordinary people in the UK over the last generation or so, and it often feels like we’re at once completely weightless and under extreme pressure – a little like being deep underwater.

“The demonization and punching-down that constitutes most of the mainstream discourse around debt, housing, poverty and precarity in this country only compounds the issue. The anger and absurdity of a track like ‘Leaking Drains’ is driven by this stuff.”

Scrounge's previous excursions into shattered sound have found fans far and wide, earning an X-posure Big One from John Kennedy with 'Badoom', a 6music Recommends Featured Artist slot from Steve Lamacq and radio play across the globe from US college radio to Double J in Australia.

In lieu of any impending live action, rest assured the duo duly squeezed out a socially distorted Brixton Windmill show late last year in between lockdowns. Furiouser and furiouser…

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