South London's Meatraffle appeared after a couple of years with a new album and a new single that I got aware earlier this year and I couldn't get this out of my head. I like them since they released their first album Hi Fi Classics back in 2015. As far as I know they are the spearhead of a new music scene in South London. Certainly because they always on the search of a perfect pop song combining their socio-politcal attitude. Lovesong Industrial Complex is the perfect example. Starting as a classic slice of bleak, mesmerising disco when later guitars joining the song when the singer philosophise about the vast numbers of meaningless, futile and emotionally hollow love songs. Seldom heard wiser word in a great song.
People pay for love songs or download them illegally
Kids as young as 3 sing about them, incredibly
There is nothing wrong with a song about love
But they are rarely ever platonic Lots of full bloodied lust and crying in your gin and tonic
