Dramatic post punk crossed with psych and new wave. This EP is kind of all over the map, but it’s an interesting listen. Sounds a bit like the latest release by These New Puritans, Hidden. Most tracks run long. FCC clean. Try 1, 2, 4.|
†1. Up-tempo punk. Vocals usu. overpowered by tremolo guitars. A lot of echo and reverb. Song reinvents itself as it goes: sometimes quick and furious, sometimes AOR-ish.
†2. Midtempo. Strings and thrumming. Apprehensive track, with a lot of echoes and layers of instrumentation. Drums sound like a marching band keeping time. Post punk version of Grizzly Bear’s Veckatimest. Let it play until the end-delicate piano chord outro.
3. Up-tempo punk. Echoe-y vocals and heavily distorted guitars. Repetitive drums and unfocused melody line. 8s of silence @ end.
†4. Downtempo. Power pop crossed with chillwave, then @ 3:30min it morphs into a psychedelic track with dramatic reverb and effects from guitars. Spacey, with long outro (~10s).
5. Downtempo. Sparse instrumentation, with voice, whistling, halting piano, and background noises (is that a typewriter?) 10s. silence @ end.
6. Uptempo post punk. Guitar pedals make quite the appearance. Looping guitar line, ominous distorted vocals and weird sound effects.
7. Uptempo post punk¬/psych. Computerized vocals and tribal drum rhythms. What sounds like computers screeching in the background. Keyboard line. The evil return of HAL.
