Cardiff's noisiest three-piece outfit SHLUG proudly announce that they've joined the Clwb Music family and are have dropped their latest single BF/FM
Cardiff's newest noise-rock three-piece SHLUG released their latest single BF/FM via Clwb Music on September 23rd. The release comes just days after the band proudly announced they've joined the Clwb Music record label.
BF/FM is the latest bone-crunching, guitar-fuelled behemoth from a band that pride themselves on making as much noise and creating as much chaos as possible at each of their live shows. Often leaving lead singer Ellis covered in bruises and, most recently, a black eye.
SHLUG describe themselves simply as "Three peas in a pod that are constantly exploding", and while that doesn't give too much away, you only need to listen to BF/FM and it'll conjure vivid imagery of bedlam and anarchy. That won't be too far away from what a live SHLUG show is like.
Lead singer and BF/FM songwriter Ellis explains; "I was searching for something to catch my attention on the airways one day and it got me thinking how easy it is for media/radio presenters to infiltrate a person and their thoughts, sapping any personality someone may have, becoming a monotone cog in the machine. So the lyrics within BF/FM paint a landscape of a radio presenter demanding that you put your foot down and never stop driving forward, no matter what is in your path."
Although SHLUG are new to the Cardiff and South Wales music scene, they've already been featured multiple times on BBC Radio Wales with Adam Walton who described their previous releases as "If this next piece of music was a sketch or a sketchbook, it would burn your hands. Eviscerating, in all the good ways". SHLUG have also gained support from Tom Robinson at BBC 6 Music and Amazing Radio.
Ellis continues; "Don’t get me wrong, they’re not all bad but let’s be honest, there are some people out there who try and sway you with their hypnotic tones. Stay alert, keep an ear out for them.".
