ARTIST OF THE WEEK: No.405 - splint

Having spent the last year building up their notoriety within their hometown of Manchester, emerging outfit splint are now looking to become one of the next big names on the new music scene as they drop their infectious new single 'Military Procedures'.

Newly signed to the illustrious Nice Swan Records, home to the likes of Courting, Sprints, Malady, English Teacher, and Opus Kink, 'Military Procedures' sees them kick off their next chapter in vibrant form. Channelling the bold and electrifying aesthetic that has proven successful for fellow contemporaries Yard Act and Sports Team in recent years, this lot are certainly bringing back some much-needed energy to the fledging post-punk-inspired indie-rock scene.

Speaking about the new offering, frontman Jake Bogacki said, “Military Procedures is in essence a song about the confusion of adolescence and the acceptance of your own failings, each of which lead you to the circumstances you find yourself in. Five years was always the given quota by education establishments to judge where and what you will be after you’d finished, to create a sense of urgency to be something. What’s the end goal of all that?”
