mp3: Shock Defeat! – Fast Hands

Shock Defeat! are Felix of Hot Chip’s favourite London band. Sure with their funky bass lines, noodly guitars and relentless disco drum beats on some levels they sound a lot like their peers Foals and The Rapture.

The band are as yet unsigned but will be presumably self-releasing another EP, ‘Olympic Village’ soon. Meanwhile go see them live, I’ve heard great things. Date below.

For Fans Of: Talking Heads, The Rapture, Foals.

live: Be @ Proud Gallery, May 23rd.
