The Neversheds’ debut EP ‘Crawling’ is a sojourn from big beefy basslines and The Cure style melody to Buzzcocks and The Jam inspired punk rock over the space of three carefully crafted tracks. The band refuse to be pigeon-holed with ‘Crawling’ crammed full of mammoth, ascendant guitar roars and a Joy Division indebted vocal and bassline while ‘Don’t Rock The Bassman’ and ‘The Boat You Row’ take on elemental 70’s punk.
The London-based four piece, who made their live debut supporting The Others at their 20th anniversary gig back in April, feature singer and rhythm guitarist Dan Edmunds, Dan’s father Steve Edmunds on bass, Julian Kaufman on lead guitar and drummer Matthew Fletcher. The songs that make up the ‘Crawling’ EP were written by Steve Edmunds in the 1980s and 1990s before he put his rock’n’roll dreams aside to raise a family. Now, 30 or so years later, his musical tastes seem worthily inherited by his son who has helped bring his dad’s music to life and present it to a music-hungry public.
The ‘Crawling’ EP was released on all of the streaming services on 8th June 2022, just before the group played their single launch show at Camden’s Fiddler’s Elbow on 11th June 2022.
