Discrete UK band Organised Scum share “My Life, The Instrument”

Don’t get it wrong! It’s not because Organised Scum‘s presence on social media is as strong as Mariah Carey‘s one on stage for her NYE performance that the band don’t have what it takes to make it in 2017.

Indeed, the discrete London-based group act, which notably comprised of Tom Duggins (Vocals / Guitar) and Sean Canty (Drums / Keys), released the EP “Death to the Liberal Idea” on December 2 via Kaleidoscope; a 4-track project that they describe as their official summary of 2016 and that notably features the closing track “My Life, The Instrument.”

Organised Scum’s stock has steadily risen and why not, when you receive support from the likes of The Line of Best Fit or BBC6 Music amongst others.

Explaining the recording process of the EP, singer and guitarist Tom Duggins said:

“We’ve started to work in a slightly more unusual way. We’ve started taking our ideas to our friend and producer Ed Treacy in the first instance. We’ll have all the parts of the song – the broad structure, the lyrics – ready, but we try not to lock things down too much. We want there to be room for a bit of studio experimentation, and with Ed, it’s all about finding sounds, coming up with unusual parts, trying to improvise a bit while we record. Trying to surprise yourself as things develop. But we then go to John Martindale (Shields, Nimmo, The Pale White) to get extra input, and with him we’ll do overdubs and re-record certain parts; he just helps add a little bit of gloss to the final thing.”

Organised Scum also shared a lyric video for the first single “The Rare Gift of Healing,” a song that sees the band make a detour into a mix of stoner-folk and svelte indie-pop.
