No one is adverse to a little aural contagion in their lives and few come catchier and as irresistibly captivating then Wreck n Rollin, the new single from Little Eris. An infectious romp of power punk igniting two and a half minutes of anyone’s life, the song is a potent attention grabbing step in the steady but eager emergence of the Welsh artist.
Little Eris, aka Bronwen Davies (former vocalist and bass player with Freaky Fortnight), has been lighting up ears since 2008. She first drew attention with the release of 13 track debut album Molecules R Us containing a collection of demos available as a free download and subsequently followed by a limited edition CD to strong responses. Live she has also earned acclaimed recognition, sharing stages with artists such as Viv Albertine and touring the UK with The Great Wreck and Roll Cirkus alongside Here & Now and Eat Static. The new release follows the success of debut single So Many Nights, a synth pop treat in 2012 on Original Human Records, just as its successor. Taking the backdrop of austerity in the UK as its premise, the Charlie Hoskyns produced Wreck n Rollin is a tantalising provocation fusing potent insight with virulent punk rock and finding little difficulty in securing an eager appetite for the protestation.
A throaty bass opens up the horde of ripe lures courting the song, its compelling coaxing leading ears and attention into crisp rhythms and subdued riffs joined soon after by healthily appealing melodic enterprise. The song does not charge out of the blocks at the listener but instead offers a vibrant and feisty seducing which once in to its stride is completed by the fine voice of Little Eris. The infectiousness of the song is urgent though within the concentrated canter, spreading with virulence across the imagination as the eager chorus weaves its antagonistic charm aided by rawer male vocals. It is a great ‘conflict’, the sinewed and combative heart and frame of the song working with the melodic and harmonic colours bred but guitars and vocals.
A song you find yourself loudly joining in with before its very first persuasion is over, Wreck n Rollin is a fun slice of rock ‘n’ roll with potent commentary. It is a song impossible not to get excited over as are the beckoning horizons of Little Eris herself.
