about

First single to be taken from the forthcoming album "Infinite Variety".

"Cast your mind back to the golden age of new wave with bands like Devo, Wire and er Toy Dolls.
The Edinburgh boys - singer Jeremy Thoms, guitarist Steve Fraser, bassist Neil Baldwin and drummer David Mack - were probably buying ther records the first time round.
But their sound is difficult to Resist (thank you) and should be flagged to younger bands still enthralled by Oasis or Biffy Clyro.
Resist is sparky and snappy, prancing in at just 2.13 minutes it's persistant squally guitar picks at your brain.
There's a smattering of the Toy Dolls' wry smile at nursery rhymes aswell as Franz Ferdinand's groove.
This jolt of sonic electricity bodes well the band's second album Infinite Variety (out on April 20)."

DAILY RECORD Single review by Rick Fulton. Friday, March 6, 2015.

lyrics

RESIST

IT WAS THE SAME OLD VOICE
THAT SAID THE SAME OLD WORDS
IT WAS AS IF YOU HAD NO CHOICE
COS THEY WERE ALL THAT YOU HEARD

Chorus
RESIST, RESIST - YOU KNOW I MUST
INSIST, INSIST – WHO DO YOU TRUST?
DESIST, DESIST – YOU KNOW YOU MUST
RESIST, RESIST – WHO DO YOU TRUST?

IT’S AT THE SAME OLD TIME
IN THE SAME OLD PLACE
AND IT IS THE SAME OLD CRIME
DON’T YOU KNOW
IT’S WRITTEN ALL OVER YOUR FACE

Repeat Chorus x 2
