Shades of The Mars Volta and The Mae Shi in the shape-shifting pop-prog chaos here. Two-part vocal harmonies morph with a sort of anarchic precision on each track as guitars twiddle away dextrously. The instrumentals cycle from rambunctious math to Glitter-beat glam to Wurlitzer-driven funk - often within the space of a single minute, let alone a single song. It’ll be a 10” vinyl in your hands soon enough.
8/10 Clinton Staff review, 07 December 2016
Prog. Not normally my forte but the young man who likes lots of notes is away recovering so let's see how I get on shall we? Well it's not that prog, more progressive noisy mathy rock with some pretty severe head nods towards Fugazi on the opener 'Rushing Lunch' which marries a rather memorable riff (on the electrical guitar of course) with a kind of plaintive vocal delivery. Naturally they follow this up with the a capella intro to 'Dad' which sounds like the time the Futureheads forgot their instruments before it tumbles into something that sounds like the guy from the Wild Beasts fronting a Shudder to Think who are doing Mars Volta covers.
I suspect this is good. It's wildly varied and no two notes sound the same never mind no two songs. The fact that they lurch from the Thinking Feller's esque squeal of 'My Knees' to the gorgeous glistening folk of 'Treason'. The only worry is perhaps they don't know what they want to be....but perhaps they could be everything?
