As nostalgia works its charm on us and we bow down to its utterly irresistible sentiment, the latest wave comes in the form of groups channelling a harsh, grunge sound that spilled its guts in the early ‘90s. Many might copy its entire shape and form, but MUST manage to craft something on its own standing. ‘The Devil Lives’ defies nostalgia cynics the world over. It’s a modern day anthem in the making, all clapped tambourines and saccharine guitar riffs.

The video accompanying the track is full of grubby looking specimen riding motorbikes and looking mean and beefy. MUST’s music is aptly fitting for such a visual ‘treat’. The aesthetic appeals to sweaty teens in packed venues, with a sound equal measures glorious and gritty.

MUST play the first date of Neu! and The Old Blue Last’s ‘Hello 2013’ showcase on 8th January, alongside Wolf Alice, Men’s Adventures and Blackeye.
