Splashh - Need It

A three-minute tidal wave of sun-kissed jubilation.

Splashh’s ‘Need It’ irrefutably hits some blissful, sweltering spot. A three-minute tidal wave of sun-kissed jubilation brimming with towering synths, propulsive tom-toms and cascading riffage, these precocious Hackney boys, the Luv Luv Luv imprint’s latest signees, have created a fuzzy strain of surf-rock which recalls the Brian Jonestown Massacre at their most accessible. It’s overwhelmingly brilliant.

Accompanied by a dazzling, fiery video, which features an air-punching pardy atmosphere and the band cruising around flailing crimson beacons and roaming the seemingly terrified streets, it’s a bold and wraithlike inauguration for sure. Formed in only February this year, and painfully youthful, Toto Vivian and Sasha Carlson’s grunge-poppy Splashh are surely one of 2013’s greatest hopes.
