release their stunning new single And It Fights in May. Billy Barratt and David Vincent’s inspired tales from the front line of life delve deep into a narrative so resonant it beggars belief that two south Londoners, so young, can draw on such a deep seam of emotion with such engaging empathy. They deliver evocative stories – if indeed that is what they are (my god I hope these guys haven’t lived all this!) – of life’s bittersweet chapters that past masters of the art, Cave, Davies, Morrisey & Stipe have taken years to hone. For every Americana or folk inflection there is an edge to Billy Vincent that suggests they share a kinship with The Faces or The Libertines as much as anybody else: this is a gang you’d like to hang with as much as eulogise.
