The Race - Rude Boy

Pounding and anthemic it is also classy with its ‘just so’ playing and production.

Preview single for forthcoming album ‘In My Head It Works’, this is the latest surprise from the ever loveable Shifty Disco records.

‘Rude Boy’ is a great radio track made all the more interesting because it doesn’t sound like this was ever the intention. A fat (almost) dub sound builds up a sonically charged atmosphere sliced by incisive lyrics. This is the sort of song Hard-Fi would kill for but could never pull off. Pounding and anthemic it is also classy with its “just so” playing and production.

As a taster for the album ‘Rube Boy’ is enticing and in an ideal world ought to be blaring out of car windows through a long hot summer.
