KEXP suggests Scanners!

The new record, Violence Is Golden came out last week and we think you should have a listen! Here’s a nice description from New Musical Express…

“We need less boring, boring indie boys! Think we need an injection of snarling grrrl voices? Me too! That’s why I’m bloody obsessed with snarling London rawk types Scanners whose singer Sarah is a shining bright star in its ascendancy. They’re like all the songs Kim Gordon sings in Sonic Youth, but played by Motorhead at their early-’80s peak. And if that doesn’t sound brilliant to you, perhaps it might be worth slicing off your ears and giving them to someone who deserves them, yeah?” – NME

Check out a couple songs from Violence Is Golden

Evil Twin – (Real)
Look What You Started – (Real)
Lowlife – (MP3)

Scanners are playing two shows in London at The Old Blue Last on July 20 and On The Rocks on July 21.

    Good call! Heard “Lowlife” on KEXP last week and immediately went to find the download.
