Sheffield punks Nai Harvest know how to write a tune. It was not surprise then when, in early February, they announced that their debut album Hairball was on its way! 'All The Time' is the most recent of the album's tracks to appear online, bringing with it yet more mind-bending riffs and pounding drum.
Frontman Ben Thompson’s pop vocals rudely interrupt the tracks jumpy guitar hook to trample on a pile of feedback. His forceful, yet playful sounding vocals stutter, "I-I-I- I want it all the time" he shouts. The duo alternate between the punchy early riff and its insistent pop shriek and a slower hopping section of almost funky indie sound over which Thompson vigorously shouts "I want to break free".
'All The Time' joins the beautifully named 'Sick on My Heart', a frantic fuzz-ball of punk goodness, as the only two track from Hairball to have appeared online as of yet. If these two beauties are anything to go by there will no doubt be sweat next month when the band take their noisy surf rock neighbours Best Friends on tour with them. It's not one you want to miss!
