After a 6-year hiatus, Skint & Demoralised are back: with raw post-punk energy and razor-sharp political lyrics. New single ‘Boro Kitchen 4am’ is a fierce reflection of the social and political landscape that surrounds the band in 2019; a far cry from the romance-fuelled pop ditties from their 2009 debut.
Indie-pop favourites such as ‘Red Lipstick’ enjoyed heavy national radio action during the band’s first stint. In the intervening years, front man Matt Abbott has established himself on the spoken word poetry scene and songwriter David Gledhill has made waves as a producer. Their reunion is unapologetic, urgent, and long overdue.
