SCUM came out of the London scene two years ago sounding exactly like The Horrors soundalikes. But really bad soundalikes. That’s probably why you didn’t hear about them. I mean, just listen to how bad their first single is. Anyway, in 2011, the sound developed and they discovered how to make something that doesn’t sound like they’re playing their instruments for the first time. ‘Amber Hands’, the video of which is above, is released in July. It was produced by Ken Thomas, comes backed with mixes by Sonic Boom and Silver Apples and ‘Fountains’. SCUM should release an album September. Hopefully it sounds more like ‘Amber Hands’ than ‘Visions Arise’ *shudder*.
