Table Scraps sum up 2020 with riff-laden new single, Doom Generation

Table Scraps drop a thunderous new single; the first from their upcoming album Coffin Face.

Scott, Poppy and Tim have been representing Birmingham on the international garage-rock stage for years now, so we have to trust them. But when they say that new single ‘Doom Generation’ was recorded before the pandemic took hold, it seems like a reach. The two-minute slab of grinding catharsis feels like the perfect anthem for 2020.

With their previous release, 2018’s Autonomy, garnering heavy airplay from BBC 6 Music and acclaim from the likes of Monster Magnet and IDLES, new sounds from the Scraps can only be good news. “Doom Generation” fuses the groups heavy metal heritage with a garagey bite that calls to mind Oh Sees and Amyl & The Sniffers. It might not be the most uplifting track you hear this year, but we’re all looking for a light at the end of the tunnel right now, and maybe Coffin Face could be just that.

As we’ve come to expect from Table Scraps (see also: ‘I Wanna Stay Home With U‘ and ‘Lyin’ Thru Yer Teeth‘,) ‘Doom Generation’ comes complete with a sweet video produced by the band, full of references to the local music scene. Check it out below and see what familiar faces and places you can spot.
