Over the past two years of so, Brighton / London-based trio Johnny Kills have impressed time and time again with a series of infectious and fuzzed up slabs of scuzzy garage-surf-pop.
The trio are back and repeating the trick once more with a new single ‘Editing’. Lifted from their debut EP Panic, due out on November 20th via Killing Moon, ‘Editing’ is a charming, melodic and scuzzy surf-pop treat that is bristling with emotion and energy as it juxtaposes tender, touching lyrics with driving guitar. While wrapped in a delightful (and recognisable) fuzzed up package of catchy chorus, singalong lyrics and hooks you could hang your hat on, it is marked by an air of melancholy and rousing defiance. It is a sublime track, one that manages to blend rousing anthemic fervour with touching and tender and the sweetness of the pop, in a way of Blur in their pomp.
Listen to ‘Editing’ below and keep an eye out for the EP come November 20:
