Fade To Blackwaters


“Britain’s in a slump and the kids are numb, they feel like they’ve got nowhere to go,” says James Watkins, one fourth of hotly-tipped indie-punk genre-smashers BLACKWATERS. “We’re slaves to our screens, we’re victims – that’s why kids are into dumb drugs and dumb sh*t, and they’ve got no way to express it. F*ck Yeah is a reaction to that.” 

Following on from strong support from Radio 1, Radio X and more, Guildford’s guitar-smashing answer to 2017 have released a ruthlessly catchy, fist-in-the-air party-tune produced by The LIbertines’ Carl Barat and sometime Prodigy co-writer Ollie Burden, and it’s got a serious message about the youth of today. With a slew of live dates as well as a strong run of summer festivals (with more to be announced), now’s the time to see them bring the house down with their infectious brand of snot-nosed fury.
