Beatstream Single of the Week - Torture - Cabbage

1st May 2019

Manchesters wild and controversial five-piece Cabbage are back after a few months break with their latest single “Torture.” The song is quite divergent from the usual gloomy, in your face, punk music that the band have made a name for themselves with. Instead opting for a quite bright, almost surf rock vibe that the band on twitter labelled as their “attempt at The Beach Boys if we ran out of money before getting the orchestra in.”

However, whilst sonically the tune is a step in a different direction for Cabbage, the lyrics still carry the messages the band have been putting out since the beginning. They are rebellious and rather anti-austerity, featuring lead singer Lee Broadbent listing the things he would rather do than accept the current state of politics in our country, for example - “Cause I’d rather cut off my arm, Than raise it to salute those who initiate the fear.”

The track really showcases Cabbages versatility and willingness to experiment with their music and is a solid addition to their repertoire. I can’t wait to see where this sound goes for the band.
