Hatcham Social say that Electricity In Our Homes are one of the most inspiring bands making music today. Yes, the same EIOH that produce 2-minute DIY art punk to plenty of scoffs of “I could do that.” Well, you didn’t “do that”, they did, and their refusal to go quietly into a forgotten Shoreditch swap-shop career has wound them up here, releasing a 6-track EP that proves Hatcham right. The Fall once proved that stark originality can come from limited technical know-how and bags of imagination, and despite how much their name is banded around today, EIOH are one of a few nearing such unapologetic greatness. There’s four tracks proper here, which still clang and strain, tumbling along to rickety drums, but structurally and harmonically the evolution of EIOH is scoff free.
