Well, well, well; what have we here?
A new track from Flies On You, to whet your appetite for their forthcoming LP?

There was a time when "Can You Smell That Burning Noise?" would have been a floor-filler in the nation's alternative dance halls. When there was neither shame nor paradox in welding strident post-punk guitars to an insistent solid rhythm and allowing some dour northerner to ruminate obtusely on personal troubles and public issues, whilst the air hung rife with the heady whiff of insurrection. And it was fun, believe it or not.
But it's 2014. A lot has changed.
Ah, well. Shit happens.
The resistance has to start somewhere.
