Album artwork for Love Your Work by Eight Rounds Rapid

Southend stalwarts Eight Rounds Rapid release their third album Love Your Work with German label Tapete. Rooted in the infamous Canvey Island R'n'B tradition, Eight Rounds Rapid channel the fervour of Dr Feelgood, Wire, Gang of Four and Public Image Limited with their gritty tales of the Essex underworld.

Recorded under the spectre of a global pandemic, Love Your Work reflects feelings of confusion, angst and isolation - all delivered with singer David Alexander's trademark sneering dry wit. The customary low life and underground subjects are still the only language they know, but this album is as much a commentary on contemporary music confronting modernity as it is a collection of musical compositions. The new album grapples with the folly of nostalgia while singles Love Don't, Tricks and Eating ramp up the energy levels. Violent lowlives and losers populate the songs as usual, but David Alexander now draws himself closer into view, with Aging Athlete, a metaphor for a musician searching for legitimacy in a dull landscape
