A footprint was placed onto the coast of the music world by Social Contract on the 23rd of June, following the release of new track ‘Six Pips’. The tide was certainly out for the band as the single shows no signs of being washed over by any who listen.
Essentially a drag into the more gloomy side of indie rock, ‘Six Pips’ has hints of despair sewn into sombre lyrics, complimented by jangly guitar riffs and punchy drums.
The group of 4 from South London have enraptured a viscous cycle of frustration and self doubt into a raw melodramatic riff, complete with a 13 second teasing squeal of solo guitar.
Proving they deserve a solid place into the ears of the youth just two songs in, Social Contract have a bright future ahead. ‘Six Pips’ is only a trailer into the bands destiny of success, a cliff hanger of capability and a memorable start to a journey.
