Only Real – “Blood Carpet”


I can guarantee you West London’s Only Real probably owns at least one vintage Bart Simpson “Eat My Shorts” tee. That’s about all I can really guarantee, come to think of it. I can’t tell if you’ll like him, or if I do, even. Sure, there’s the hazy, sunny pop sound that seems to get me every time, but the 21-year-old destroys the usual laid-back atmosphere with a bratty, obnoxious attitude, adding goofy white boy raps to falsetto hooks I can’t seem to escape. The fact that new single “Blood Carpet” and “Backseat Kissers” hasn’t landed this dude on the cover of NME or some other British garbage rag is kind of baffling. Check out both tracks after the jump.


The double A-side single drops this Tuesday via ASL Records. Buy it if you’re into that sort of thing.
