Probably the catchiest song you’ll hear this week! Portsmouth’s own Operation Ivan is back with his second single ‘Nicotine Offence League‘. It’s an alternative-pop, synth heavy tack that’s snappy and tinged with a post-punk edge. Once again, this is a track so infectious it will definitely get stuck in your head. If you like this, ‘Nicotine Offence League’s b-side ‘Numb’ is also well worth a listen!
Speaking of the track, Operation Ivan has said: “Operation Ivan strikes back. The ship has landed and Ivan takes his first steps upon the surface of the smoking area, encountering the soggy ciggy puffing aliens that dwell within for the very first time.This is a whole new environment for Ivan. He does not smoke, he does not lie and he certainly doesn’t gloat about his job title and monthly earnings to attract attention.”
“We’ve all been there, trapped inside the outside area of a venue, cornered by the unescapable ear chewers that lurk in wait. Once they talk there is no stop however Ivan remembers well for his memory is unparalleled. Ivan takes on the league with Synth.”
Operation Ivan is the solo project of Portsmouth art-punk band Hallan‘s frontman Conor.
