Review Summary: U Want the scoop? Yeah I got it bby

U Want The Scoop? is a strange little exercise in absurdity. ‘Clay’ opens it with the rhythmic squeaks of what sounds suspiciously like a dog toy, before diving into a dazzling post-punk piss-take; lyrics like “I like cereal, but I aint no cereal killer” are crooned over serene synths and frenetic drumming with what comes close to an auditory grin. ‘Have A Good Day Sir’ is a lumbering tale recounting a conversation with a police officer, replete with gabbled lyrics, mimicking voices and a sheen of knowing humour. ‘All Access’ is a mad circus dance-punk track with clapping snares and high pitched synth. ‘U Want The Scoop’ is a tauntingly strange song that tells you of the man from (splip?) who asks if you want the scoop repeatedly, as well as whether you are in on the loop. However, I don’t think anyone can say they are in on the loop with this. It’s short, weird and bafflingly listenable considering it’s all a bit of a joke. Regardless though, that was the scoop.

this review is pretty fitting for the EP, truth be told. i wanted to write a review for it back when it came out but decided that writing a singular paragraph probably wasn't a good idea.
