Single review: The Steens – What a Way to Die

Scuzzy, distorted garage blues are in evidence here from the Orange County brothers, with a song that flicks every light on the sound desk to red and rattles through the three-minute runtime like it’s trying to sprint out of town.

With shades of every outlaw to have plugged in a guitar, from Lead Belly to Rocket from the Crypt, it’s a joyous, shimmering howl of glitter-glam filth.

‘What A Way To Die’ was released on 24th June
