Best of 2019: slowthai's Nothing Great About Britain
A visceral blend of the energy, politics and presentation of punk with the jagged and bleak sounds of early grime, the incendiary and irreverent Nothing Great About Britain is slowthai's compelling, snarling critique of a post-Brexit Britain. It’s a vision of his home country in 2019 which is potent and profoundly grim: a toxic nation torn apart and crumbling under misguided nationalism, rising social injustices and irreconcilable political partisanship. On his debut record, Slowthai makes himself impossible to ignore, solidifying his reputation as one of the most vital new voices to emerge from a post-Brexit UK TRACKLIST: 'Nothing Great About Britain' 'Jiggle' 'TN Biscuits' 'Drug Dealer' 'Doorman (with Mura Masa)' 'Dead Leaves' 'Gorgeous' 'Crack' 'Grow Up (feat.
