9/10 Mike Staff review, 19 September 2013

It’s good to see that Girls Against Boys are still plugging away, their ‘House of GVSB’ and ‘Venus Lux...’ albums both got a lot of spins from teenage Mike back in the day, and I have fond memories of finally seeing them live with Enon and Swearing At Motorists when they first reformed a few years ago. Now they have a new five-song EP which, kind of like Three Mile Pilot’s one-sider last year, is a small but perfectly formed collection of tracks which see the band in surprisingly strong form (and like the 3MP EP, it costs a little bit more than you’re comfortable paying for five songs).

Opener ‘It’s A Diamond Life’ mixes their gritty grooves with a synth and guitar interplay and stream-of-consciousness lyricism which reminds me of pre-Hold Steady post-new-wave outsiders Lifter Puller, while before long there’s some bludgeoning noise rock grooves in '60>15' like the bastard child of the Jesus Lizard and The Afghan Whigs all dripping in sweat and grease and sex. Flip it and ‘Let’s Get Killed’ is a cathartic indie rock epic with one foot in noise rock and the other in Killers-esque stadium angst (but not in as bad a way as you might imagine) before they head in the opposite direction entirely on the final track for one of their whispery two-note disco-funk groovers. Really cool EP, recommended whether you’re a long time fan or haven’t yet been introduced.
