Have You Heard? The Streets - Burn Bridges

The Streets - Burn Bridges

Skinner deadpans with typical syllable-twisting agility, and it’s like he never left.

You know what they say about buses? Well, it turns out the same thing applies to The Streets; you wait ages (well, seven years to be exact) for a slice of new material, and then two new songs only go and blimmin’ rock up at the same time! ‘Sometimes I Hate My Friends More Than My Enemies’ and ‘Burn Bridges’ marked a surprise return over the festive holidays, and the latter is a minimally chiming Mike Skinner special, channelling the crispier-than-crackling percussiveness of UK Garage, and careering down a path of escapist hedonism and emotional bridge burning.

“Immerse in the drink, disperse a whole cigarette, traverse the whole city, let the hearse do a skid,” Skinner deadpans with typical syllable-twisting agility, and it’s like he never left.
