7/10 Keelan Customer review, 11th March 2015
DZ Deathrays are a critically acclaimed Australian rock duo based in Brisbane. Their first record is essentially a thrash punk party, full of screaming, shouting,and dirty riffs. The lyrics occasionally verge on nonsense, particularly tracks like "Cops Capacity", but you'll usually be headbanging too much to care. Tracks 1 & 2 ("Teenage Kickstarts" and "Dollar Chills") are the brilliant punk-tinged shout alongs that define the sound of the record. Track 5 "Gebbie Street" is an epic track, featuring a steady buildup to an incredible distorted finale (the track even features bongos, if you're so inclined). The second half of the record is decidedly a little quieter, with a couple of exceptions. It seems like an attempt to demonstrate some more complex song-writing, but it can be a little hit and miss in places.
DZ Deathrays debut record is a brilliant collection of thrash-rock songs, though hindered by occasionally immature and overly-repetitive songwriting.
