Local Girls – Polished * Single of the day * release date 18/4/2011

Polished is a track from Local Girls timely named E.P. The Wedding Jitters and is an object lesson in getting that perfect U.K. punk/new wave sound.

Lo fi and visceral with a simple,straight-forward and growling guitar riff, leaving room for a vitriolic and clever vocal to take centre stage. The instrumental gives us a little time to hear the bass line before moving off into a moody guitar solo. Any more complicated than this and it would just be wrong.

Finally add a video taken on one camera and in one shot and you're there. The world could do with more songs as up front as this.
