Tune for today

The Lash – Rent

Sometimes a name is all it takes and The Lash is a great band name. I haven’t researched if anyone else is currently using it but there are plenty of naff and unmemorable act names out there and this is not one of those.

The vid for Rent was apparently recorded for pennies entirely using mobile phones which is a good story even if it isn’t true. It looks far too professional to me but who has time to argue?

There’s more to hear here to prove they know their way around a tune and though that’s rarely enough they seem to be kicking up a storm in South Wales right now.

It’s a familiar formula: soulful foxy female with decent voice fronts an otherwise ordinary looking band but they certainly play with a bit of swagger and there’s few better ways to waste four minutes today.
