Sleaford Mods

It is increasingly clear that Brexit has become the most serious domestic crisis Britain has faced in the modern democratic era. So what does this sorry state of affairs sound like in music? Let me introduce you to Sleaford Mods. The duo, originally from Nottingham, describes its work as “electronic munt minimalist punk-hop rants for the working class“. They are selling themselves short. Their music is for everybody. Some singers look like the act of singing hurts. They don’t have a singing voice. They can’t dance. They are not stylish or attractive. It is as if the words erupt out of their contorted bodies despite their better judgment to get up on stage and perform in front of a live audience. This is what it is like watching Jason Williamson perform Jobseeker on Jools Holland.
