CD singles. What is the bloody point? Who the hell buys these things? Ah! You! Well if you like these things (10 minutes of music on a disc that can hold 80) then you should get this one cos it's very good & isn't by The Manic Street Preachers which is the only band I can think of that still releases CD singles. That is a joke, not a very good one, sorry! For Against persist in producing glacial new wave style music along the lines of The Lines (see what I did there??) or early Cure and they do it really well indeed on this new single . It sounds authentic, energised & taut with a thrilling sense of minimal dynamism. The second track has an almost ethereal guitar & a lighter, more propulsive edge. It's a sound forged from the past but this track 'Dark Good Friday' is quite excellent & rather affecting, featuring ecstatic chinks of light that permeate to the doom. Concluding with 'Amen Yves (White Circles)' this three piece continue with their compulsive take on brittle, melodic post-punk exploration with a deep, cyclic atmospheric finish. It's almost dream-rock in places. They're really quite good these lads and so they should be, they've been at it for donkeys years, amassing a small but committed following.
