Abjects are a London-based trio, who are a walking celebration of the cities multi-cultural wonders. Composed of singer/guitarist Noemi from Spain, bassist Yuki from Japan and drummer Alice from Italy, the band are three citizens of the world, making joyous pop-songs with the arty edge you’d expect from a band who met while studying at Goldsmiths. This week the band have announced details of their debut album, “Never Give Up”, as well as sharing the rambunctious title track.

The track is a response to the complications thrown up by the rise of nationalistic, populist politics, and how sometimes, you just have to ignore them, “life is full of problems and obstacles, but we’re never going to give up having fun and living our lives the way we want”.

The track bounds in on a snare drum, so energetic that it seems to almost be jumping out of its stand, as Sleater Kinney-like guitar riffing, and shout-along Hinds-like vocals add some melodic to flare to the mix. Abjects are a band who look at the world’s problems and seem to refuse to be broken by them, their own kind of joyous, celebratory, revolution; if you can’t beat them, dance at them!

“Never Give Up” is out February 15th on Yipee Ki Yay.
