Ordinary Noise – If Fish Could Scream

• “If Fish Could Scream” original music video. Thanks to Ordinary Noise.

8.4 “Fantastic Indie Pop from England”

From their EP “You Are Here” released in July 2015.

Truly fantastic stuff – beautiful, thought-provoking and very well crafted. Hailing from Colchester, Lou Terry, Ross Connell, Tim Tokley and Jonny Poole – aka Ordinary Noise – cite influences ranging from Bob Dylan to Jeffrey Lewis. Since forming in 2013, Ordinary Noise have been receiving airplay from likes of of Steve Lamacq and Jarvis Cocker on BBC 6 Music.

Speaking to guestlist.net lead singer Lou revealed a bit of the background to this one:

It’s about the treatment of animals, particularly pigs, in intensive farms. The start follows the story of a pig called Nicki that escapes an intensive farm in a flood. An adult pig is an intelligent as a three year old child! The title is so because if fish had the vocal chords to scream, you’d hear them do so as their internal organs rupture due to the quick pressure change experienced when they fished from the ocean.

Heard on Mark Cunliffe’s November 2015 show on Dandelion Radio.
