Don’t Wait Animate – CMU Review

 SINGLE REVIEW: Don’t Wait Animate – 6174 (Genepool Records)
“Things will only get worse/before they get better” is the cry from Steve Lamacq faves Don’t Wait Animate on their debut single. How apt that seems with a new government on the block who somewhat lack the optimism that persuaded New Labour to adopt D:Ream’ biggest hit as their anthem. Starting with a spaghetti Western style guitar, and then jerkily bouncing into life with a dubstep bassline and shouty vocals caustically analysing survival on Jobseekers Allowance and the wider state of the economy, this is a fascinating slice of intelligent yet still party-centred indie. Perhaps these guys are the new Klaxons but with more to say for themselves. We shall see, but this is a good start.
