Sleaford Mods’ latest release O.B.C.T. is typically bleak but as listenable as ever. The single is blazing a trail for their upcoming album Eton Alive, which is due to be released this Friday, 22nd February.

Never having been performers to worry about convention, the duo’s latest single features a kazoo solo around the halfway mark. This is all laid over a bassy beat that will feel familiar, but welcome, to Sleaford Mods fans.

Equally unconventional was a recent Twitter promotion in which frontman Jason Williamson was filmed, seemingly unawares at first, refuelling his car. He soon realised and begrudgingly reeled off his promotional line about the album. It’s this promotional foot-dragging that goes hand in hand with Sleaford Mods’ lyrical frustration though, and it suits the Nottingham duo down to the ground.

The duo's trademark post-punk stylings are as present as ever in O.B.C.T. and suggest Eton Alive will be an album for fans to savour.
