The Truth: the fervently-named NATIONAL SERVICE are four sonic soldiers on musical manoeuvres in North London. They consist of Fintan Campbell (vocals / guitar), Daniel Hipkin (bass / vocals), Iain Kelly (guitar / vocals) and Matthew Alston (drums). ‘Caving’ is their brrrrand new single, and a furious onslaught of raging guitars it is, too, all oppressed emotion and suppressed mayhem.

Or in the words of singer Fintan: “‘Caving’ was recorded and co-produced by John Bisset at Saccharine Studios and mixed by Eduardo De La Paz of Frightened Rabbit, The Big Moon and Peace fame. The song was written when I was being crushed under the weight of my own expectations: pressures I put on myself and commitments I made at work, at home, with music and with friends. It’s taken a long time for me to realise that I can’t be all things to all people and that it inevitably means some things have to give. Problem is, I’m just too scared to make those decisions because I don’t want to fuck it up and be one of those old men who looks back on their life all jaded and embittered because it didn’t turn out the way they wanted it to.”

Following in the wake of their ‘Foreign Love’ and ‘Meltwater’ EPs, we find ‘Caving’ paving the way for National Service’s debut album, due at some point on the other side, ie 2021.

As you were, as they say in the trade…
