“Horsemeat in the burgers/People commit murders/Everyone’s on bugle/We’re being watched by Google,” offers up Kasabian’s Tom Meighan on “Eez-Eh,” the first slice off the British rock band’s new record 48:13.
But this new track is something else entirely, and seems to have split the band’s devoted fan-base. A bubbly electro-pop number with giddy-up on the surface with a coarse lyrical underbelly, to us it sounds like a cross between Miley Cyrus’ “Bangerz” (that vocal hook is all Miley) and XTRMNTR-era Primal Scream.
And that’s one massive compliment coming from our camp. We’ve had it on repeat since it dropped yesterday.
Good to have the lads back, and good to see they’re still making folks uncomfortable.
