The Reece Nasty EP

The Situation

Like Britpop on a budget, The Situation pulls from mid-90s UK giants to make ramshackle songs big on emotion and ache. "(What Keeps You) Keepin 'On?" is a lost Oasis song, with a quiet verse and big, howling chorus. "The Greatest Thing" twinkles and surges like late-period Blur and "Why I Can't Relate" has the jumped-up energy of Supergrass. Certain to thrill Anglophiles, The Reece Nasty EP is a shot of brisk, tuneful pop.
