Skint & Demoralised: representing a drastic departure from their original late ‘00s ditties detailing teenage love affairs and adolescent angst, the ‘We Are Humans’ album instead reflects the subsequent decade of desperate austerity, as well as the European refugee crisis just 22 miles from Britain’s shores. Frontman and spoken word artist Matt Abbott Poet volunteered twice at the Calais Jungle in 2016 – either side of the EU referendum in which his native city voted 66% Leave.
Alongside Matt songwriter and producer David J Gledhill, known more recently for his SOULS project, channels a raucous poet-punk energy, with sonic influences ranging from ‘Sandinista’ to The Strokes. Since Skint & Demoralised’s first Myspaceage outing, Abbott has established himself as a nationally acclaimed poet and likewise Gledhill as a producer – already the combination is curious. Add the searingly eloquent political commentary to the mix and it becomes an urgent and vital snapshot of these tumultuous times that engulf us, all wrapped up in fist-pumping, unapologetic and utterly essential alternative anthems.
THE REPEAT BEAT POET
The Repeat Beat Poet is a spoken word artist, emcee, poet, writer, curator, event producer and student of Hip Hop. Steeped in a taste for the everyday wonders of the world and with often political, always rhythmic, and meticulously crafted poetry, he underpins his poetic responses to the world with an honest vulnerability and is undoubtedly a tea addict.
Albert Gold is a soul boy from Hackney who has released a slew of quietly sensational EPs and singles and featured on Dutch superstar producer Bakermat's 'Trouble' single. His recent 'London Calling' EP, which saw Albert casually cover capital-centric songs by Coldplay, The Clash and Blur is followed up by a brand new soulpop classique single called 'Ghost', released in the autumn.

Lilith Ai is a savage acoustic soul artist and activist. Her unstoppable DIY spirit took her on the colossal 'Bare Radical' UK tour earlier this year. She writes poignant tales of modern city life, and swapped North East London for the streets of Queens, NY early in her career, which had a profound impact on her work.
