Our first impression of London five-piece The Bodies is an intense one. Their fierce new track 'Desperate' is the lead single from their self-titled debut EP, set for release 8th October. Starting out with some speedy drums, the guitar quickly takes over and remains the driving force throughout. You'll find yourself listening intently to the guitar, then switching as you try to decipher what words the raucous vocals are so passionately exuding. Having already supported the likes of Metz, The Wytches and Bad Breeding - this is a persistent, upbeat track that we'd be keen to catch live.

The Bodies play a free entry launch show at The Shacklewell Arms on 9th October. Listen below.
