Single review: Weekend Debt – Nobody Everybody

The new single from Glasgow alt-rock band Weekend Debt dives deep into the break-up experience, with an eruptive approach. Driven by raw emotion, ‘Nobody Everybody’ takes elements from the hazy indie-rock sound of the band’s previous tracks and thrusts it up a gear, heading full-throttle to create a fierce, fast-paced anthem.

In the vein of some of their Scottish influences, namely The View and Paolo Nutini, the band’s guitarist and lead vocalist, Grant Scott, retells personal experiences in his instantly identifiable Scottish accent. The initial fear of an Arctic Monkeys retread dissipates past the sharp punctuating guitars, with a vocal delivery that runs from sweet to scream.

Guitarist Calvin Smith says, ”Nobody Everyone’ is a song that came from bottled-up emotions about a breakup, The more I let these emotions get to me, the angrier and more upset I got, which probably resulted in such a hard and heavy tune, something we hadn’t really delved into properly. It’s definitely one of our favourite songs to play live.’ It’ll probably be one of the sweatiest too, as a return to gigging will soon let us know.

The four-piece started 2020 with a packed headline show at King Tut’s and release of fan favourite ‘Legato’. Having found a new lease of life during lockdown, Weekend Debt have continued to create. Beached from a sea of sonic lethargy, we’re thankful for their enthusiasm.
