Batteries CD (Sci​-​fi Steven)

by bis

  • Batteries (Sci-fi Steven)
    Compact Disc (CD)

    Batteries is the self-titled debut solo album by Steven Clark (professionally known as Sci-Fi Steven) from Glasgow's Punk/Disco legends bis.

    An exercise in short, sharp new-wave snappiness, Steven has ramped up the guitars and latent aggression to create a new sound which has already been compared to Devo playing Queens of The Stone Age or vice-versa.

    Nagging melodies abound with some darker twists and a cynical sense of positivity informs the lyrics.

    There's plenty of pop hooks for the bis faithful, but Batteries is an angrier beast. Contains anthemic lead track "Batteries" and the viciously wonky pop of "Human Requirements”.
