Electronic producer The Bug (Kevin Martin) and Sleaford Mods' Jason Williamson have released a two-track collaborative single, "Treetop" / "Stoat," that's out now via Ninja Tune. Williamson's voice and cadence is instantly recognizable but The Bug brings an entirely different dark, synthetic feel.
"Both 'Stoat' and 'Treetop' tread the usual path lyrically for me, nonsense mixed in with little micro stories of whatever," says Williamson. "Excuses to get out frustrations and anger. I’ve been talking with Kevin for a few years now as regards doing some tunes. Matching something to The Bugs music was always on the cards, a chance to shape different vocal approaches to a certain degree which is deffo evident on Stoat I think. Love both tunes. Proper. Bang into this collab.”
