Nai Harvest the Sheffield punks that brought you ‘Buttercups’ and ‘Sick On my heart’ (what a lovely combination) have followed that up with ‘All The Time’. A quasi-Britpop punk sound which has all the swagger and knowing damage of a polished claw hammer. It smashes its way to our Track of the Day slot.
Released via Topshelf Records as the second single to come from the eagerly awaited LP Hairball out on 28th April. Following EP Hold Open Your Head and 2014’s ‘Buttercups’ we had ‘Sick On My Heart’ which equally added to the clamour for Hairball.‘All The Time’ has just whetted a few more appetites.
The guitars are gritty and distorted but still with enough melody to make the song swing with the kind of pop sensibilities demonstrated throughout the 90’s and in fact in most classic British rock bands. The track classically dips and rises but also has a kind of post-modern frenetic energy bubbling throughout that runs between the duo.
The shimmy of the melody adds art to the brash nature of the music and it turns ‘All The Time’ into a dancefloor hit worthy of the sardonic poses and flailing arms it deserves. It implies energy on to an otherwise grey and dull day. Within one song Nai Harvest have made us start drinking (in a good way).
