If you've so far missed out on CRUISING, then you might be more familiar with the various members' other bands - Girls Names, September Girls, Sea Pinks and Logikparty. So something of an indie/indiepop/punk supergroup then. Benni Johnston, Claire Miskimmin, Neil Brogan and Sarah Grimes first got together in 2013, releasing their first single, 'You Made Me Do That', early the next year. They admit that recording sessions and gigs are "sporadic", although you'd never know listening to new track 'Safe Corridor'.

The first song to be taken from their self-titled debut EP, due in August, starts out almost like a Joy Division tribute, but as soon as the twangy, surf guitar drops in they begin to sound more like The Raveonettes. There are plenty of comparisons that could be made here, but, as always, it's the quality of the song that matters most, and this post-punk gem is filled to the brim with sound and doesn't let up. Vocals are verging on being fierce and in its entirety it's a bit of a beast. Sporadic they may be, but if the end product is as good as this then there's no need to change a thing.
