Review: 'cheerbleederz'
'faceplant (EP)'   

-  Label: 'Alcopop! Records'
-  Genre: 'Indie' -  Release Date: '24th September 2018'

Our Rating:
Alcopop! Records are delighted to announce that they have signed London indie punk trio cheerbleederz and will release their debut EP title on 24th September 2018. Of course they are. But they should be especially delighted about this.

On the one hand, it’s a set of breezy, tuneful, lo-fi indie tunes, the likes of which there are countless. But in going back to early 90s basics, cheerbleederz capture a certain sense of premillennial innocence, harking back to a time of 4-track 7” EPs and self-funded bands with no internet presence testing cross-county borders by supporting ‘bigger’ local headliners in toilet venues, the likes of which are few and far between.

Lyrically, ‘faceplant’ is abrim with tales of teenage angst and awkwardness (wish I could tear the skin right off my arms’ they sing on cabin fever). And while we may all grow up, our inner youth never goes away, and as such, there’s something relatable about the songs here. And listening to cheerbleeders as a 43-year old bloke, it’s clear that the youth of today is pretty much the same as the youth of 25 years ago… and probably 30 and 35 years ago, only now with added smartphones to add to the trauma of adolescence.
