It's been a long time since we've heard anything new from Hull's The Neat. This year's tour supporting Young Knives showed us that they were indeed still active, and in conjunction with this month's Artrocker Magazine they've unleashed a new free download to tempt us all back into the fold.
'Good In Bed' is by no means as instantly brilliant as last year's essential debut single 'In Youth Is Pleasure', it is however much more intriguing and expansive. There's a similarity in their spacious sound to a pre-prog These New Puritans - thanks in part to the shared influence of The Fall. But whilst the vocals retain this spoken blur the guitars are now decked out with some nifty reverb that imbues the track with a sense of urban night hostility.
If you've not come across The Neat before but rate jittery art-pop then follow the below link to the soundcloud player. If you have heard The Neat before then you simply need to download.
