Label: Big Scary Monsters
Released: 5th May 2023
Whether it was his thrash metal phase, folksy stylings, industrial rocks numbers or covering pop stars of his youth, Jamie Lenman has always wholeheartedly embraced and faithfully honoured the musical direction he has chosen to embrace.
That’s no different with this EP. It’s a cheery, upbeat companion to last year’s ‘The Atheist’, and if you digged that then you’ll dig this. For the most part, this EP has this mid-noughties indie-rock feel and this subsequent, unshakeable, feeling that it’s soundtracking an episode of Gavin & Stacey.
That said, ‘I Done Things I Ain’t Proud Of’ is an unexpected, vulnerable, detour down a country road that serves only as proof Jamie Lenman can turn his hand to almost anything.
