Record of the week: Desire by Ought

09 February, 2018 — By Róisín Gadelrab

THIS slow-building single is a rare departure for Canadian post-punk band Ought, not least because it features a 70-piece vocal choir. Desire, taken from forthcoming album Room Inside The World, shows the band’s softer, more romantic side, described by bassist Ben Stidworthy as “Sade meets Bruce Springsteen.”
