RAAVE TAPES continue to climb with new single, SUDS

The Newcastle dance-punk trio are quickly becoming one of our favourites, and SUDS is just another reason why.

Over the past year, vivacious dance-punk trio RAAVE TAPES have become one of our favourite bands. After kicking it all off with the gritty, Midnight Juggernaughts-esque 2 U XOXO, the Newcastle band have only gone up and up, having a stellar 2017 off the back of their flagship single/ketamine anthem K Bye and its accompanying Saddle Club-themed video clip – both of which, plus more, led to the band being named as one of our favourite acts of 2017. Now they're back, returning in 2018 with another anthem in SUDS. Arriving before a slot at Groovin' The Moo Maitland this month (the first of many festival slots this year, no doubt), SUDS showcases that dark grittiness of RAAVE TAPES at its most raw and lively yet, taking all that synth-rock goodness and pushing it all into just under two minutes of pure power. It's also got a message behind it, with RAAVE TAPES using the single to repeat that being drunk is no excuse for being a bit of an ass. "We want to encourage the listener to call out this conduct, even if the culprit is a close friend," says guitarist/singer Joab Eastley. "To put it bluntly - don’t be a dickhead." Check it out below.
