If you know anything about Jake Bugg, then you know Shangri La is a title born of sarcasm. As on his self-titled debut, the artist sings of the grimy Clifton streets that weaned him. Sounding like Face To Face-era Kinks on amphetamines, "Slumville Sunrise" says it all: "My face upon the concrete, the dirt is in my mouth," he spits. "I clench my fist and feet. I try to cry out loud." The Ray Davies comparisons are even more applicable on "Messed Up Kids." Over British Invasion strum, he chronicles all the dealers, runaways and empty pockets lining the lonely streets.
