DUE for release 28th September, Sheffield's worst kept secret, The SSS are giving us a sneak peak at their forthcoming EP - Love, Lust, Lost in the form of single, Eighteen.

After offering their debut EP, Morning Light last year, the battle was on to become one of the UK's best unsigned bands, and my, have they given a good fight.

Forming just two-years ago, The SSS have achieved what many would only dream of, securing a slot at this years Isle of Wight festival and supporting Hurricane #1 being amongst their accolades. With a string of sold-out shows in their home-town, dropping this track will provide the young quintet with a chance to grow their following on an even larger, national scale.

Produced and mixed by Dave Sanderson, who has worked with the likes of Hey Sholay, Eighteen is a highly frustrated track, showing anger in perhaps its most adolescent form. Holding an obvious resemblance to early Arctic Monkeys, front-man Josh Coddington uses his vocalism to convey his locality wrapped intricately within a harmonious range. Throttling pace is mirrored by authenticated racing chords finding their feet as the choppy tonality lowers for the frank lyricism.

After the recent success of artists such as Catfish and The Bottlemen and Circa Waves, The SSS are firmly etching their name on the new wave of British rock, keep your eyes peeled.
