According to our handy smart phone app there are just 15 sleeps to Christmas – whoop! Etc, etc. So it’s not really too early to start with the festive songs already, is it? However today’s track from Sheffield’s Nature Set including lyrics such as “The greatest love I ever I had, was getting laid behind your back” is not exactly dripping with seasonal sentimentality!
It’s a fantastic tune, which struts along with a wiggle sexy enough to ‘turn pure virgin snow black.’ It’s also great to hear our favourite ex- Long Blonde Rennie Hollis, on such belligerent, snarling charismatic form. Chuck in a creepily surreal Avengers jacking video and you have the perfect antidote to the soon to be inescapable annual festive musical cheese- fest. This is possibly more welcome than ever this year, as we are still deeply traumatised and not fully recovered from catching ten harrowing (and long) minutes of the festive abomination that was “Rod Stewart’s Christmas” on TV last night. And so if you fancy candy canes dipped in vitriol or indulging in some festive sugar and spite, we would advise you look no further than Nature Set.
Nature Set are Reenie, bass and vocals (ex-Long Blondes), Daf (guitar), Claire (synth and vocals) and Marie (drums and vocals) (all ex-Navvy). The song was recorded in their home town of Sheffield by David Glover. The video was directed by Andrew Olssen.
