Pick Me Up The new single from Liverpool 7 piece Psycho Comedy kicks and rears up from the get go, galloping away towards heady echo’s of Arcade Fire evoking americana. Driving relentlessly through barnshaking pockets of 2004 amid undertones of post punk waterboys, what could be deemed repetitive ends up a strangely satisfying mini banger. – Ian Daniels

•Concept in brief•
Psycho Comedy translates as a schizophrenic acquaintance of Shaun Powell. Delving in and out of two mindsets and ways of life; the debauched and the candid. The tracks are stories that derive from personal episodes since the of age 16 to the present day.
Psycho Comedy’s work also stresses social issues and the current state of affairs.
