Walk Upright write timeless, tousled, pop music that touches on the ire of Mclusky, the Hammond-organ hookiness of Attractions-era Costello, and Pavement’s sense of mischief, but maintains an emotional directness that’s unmistakably their own.
No Control is one man’s howl of frustration, an accidental riposte to hollow state-of-the-nation punk-rock posturing, played out over two-and-a-half-minutes of squally glam-soul. London burns on a television screen, effigies topple into the sea, and a man slumps on a sofa, rendered inert by his own demons, watching his frustrations bubble over.
This isn’t a paean to prescription drugs, nor a conventional call to arms: it’s more complicated than that, more honest, and umpteen times more exciting.
This is Walk Upright’s debut release, but in preparation they have co-promoted a regular night - Life at the Top - with Those Unfortunates, and performed in East Germany, East Lancashire and London (all four corners).
