- All The Humans (Are Losing Control) by Hey Colossus
7/10 Robin Staff review, 27 April 2016
Sometimes you just gotta do what you gotta do. And sometimes you always gotta do what you gotta do. Hey Colossus take up that lesser known second-mantra with glee, continuing to adhere to low-end doom traditions with a three-cut tape of lucid slow-burners. “All The Humans (Are Losing Control)” is a no frills stoner single that stays loyal to its chord sequence forever and ever and ever as Paul Sykes surprisingly sweet, crystal-clear vocal weaves psychedelic narratives (mind control, and stuff). It’s quite charming: it’s a doom track that really wants you to like it, and I dig that.
After that’s done and dusted we get into the versions: you know, the thing where you hear a track but not as you heard it before. A double-take on “Black and Gold” comes doused in synth-syrup, warbling vocals, skittering drums and wandering guitars. It doesn’t course-correct and nor should it. We then go after “Wired Brainless”, which was once pretty succinct and neatly structured -- it’s now eleven minutes and full of silly, Krautish nuggets instead of singsong. The first side of this tape is Hey C to a tee; the second side is them starring in their own cartoon feature-length.
