‘Mind And Body’ is the brand new sonic rampage from Luton’s rebel-rousers SOURDOUGH. OUT NOW via Vandalism Begins At Home Records.
This live favourite puts down a marker of intent by the noisenik trio, and is the first taste of their highly anticipated debut EP coming this Summer, produced by sound wizard Ben ‘Faz’ Farestvedt, who has overseen radio hits by the hotly tipped Sarpa Salpa and Low Girl. Be prepared for your new earworm as the chorus, “I can’t help myself, I can’t help no one else” takes residence.
Frontman Jacob Kyte says, “Lyrically the song reflects the human condition of which people struggle to help themselves, even if it is detrimental to their own well being”
“I’ve a friend with epilepsy, and he would refuse to take his medication – sometimes people can only be told so many times, even when it’s difficult to witness. It’s something I’ve been guilty of myself.”
“The line, “Stomach aching all the time, there is something inside, it’s trying to take over me”, relates to an issue I had, but I stubbornly wouldn’t get looked at. If you can’t sort yourself out, how can you expect to be of help to someone else? This song echoes those frustrations. Life is a constant battle between the mind and body”.
Sourdough have rapidly established themselves as the chaos creators behind blistering and breathless live offensives and have been described as “A rescue mission armed with a Sonic Youth ray-gun, aimed directly towards the shadows of the mind”.
Closing 2021 with a triumphant performance at Castlefest, Sourdough are primed and ready to hit 2022 with all the force required.
