9/10 Andy Customer review, 13th August 2014
This burst of punk delivers on fast tempos, melodic driven motifs and piercing screams of lead vocalist Mish May. The energy never wanes from its breakneck pace and not once loses its knack for delivering memorable hooks.
Most impressive is the guitar driven work of Kenneth Williams, who manages to combine high pitched, short melodic phrases with bursts of atonally driven noise patterns. 'Two Seen' takes the best of both worlds; the verses establish a clearly defined melodic pattern, as the piece progress the guitar slowly descends into more noisy and abstract ventures, before recollecting itself near the end. This kind of approach to songwriting creates a a scenario where noise and melody go hand-in-hand quite comfortably.
Mish May's vocal delivery borders on very loud, to very loud in a very high pitched range. Her yelps strangely, yet appropriately compliment William's guitar work, creating some interesting interplay between the two parts.
