In his first release under his own name, Scott Lavene bursts onto the scene with his new track ‘It’s All Gonna Blow’. This quintessentially British piece of post-punk penned over a pot of tea tells the story of munching on biscuits, unplanned pregnancy and armageddon anxiety serenaded by a rumbling baseline and a toe tapping beat.
An Essex lad raised on power ballads, punk and swearing, we are charmed by the real-ness of his writing and artistic flare, undoubtedly influenced by the likes of Ian Dury, Squeeze, Tom Waits and Talking Heads.
