One of the most exciting and powerful DIY guitar bands around the UK underground scene at this time, North London indie alt./goth four-piece Desperate Journalist are continuing their approach to the release of their sophomore album, titled ‘Grow Up’, on March 24th and a European tour which includes their headline show at London’s The Scala on April 6th.

The new single ‘Be Kind’ is an emotional reflection on a dysfunctional relationship, a heartfelt return to their indie roots where Bev’s passionate vocals and Rob Hardy’s swooning guitar take the reins, switching between moments of deep melancholy and feverish chorus of poignant melodic beauty.

Desperate Journalist is definitively a precious and fully ‘grownup’ band on the rise destined to greater things, the new album is just going to prove it.
