Mastersystem are double-brother proposition, featuring the two Hutchinsons from Frightened Rabbit and the Lockeys of Editors and Minor Victories. Dance Music is their debut album, and it, naturally, is not really dance music. What it is is fuzzy, heavy, dark but high-energy music with guitars and such. Its released on Physical Education Recordings.

7/10 Clinton Staff review, 25 April 2018

I can't think right now of a double brother band like Mastersystem. They contain two sets of siblings  - the Hutchinsons from Scotland/Frightened Rabbit and the Lockeys from Yorkshire and Editors/Minor Victories. 

They got together to play angsty loud music and admit inspiration has come from being anxious in their thirties. They also note that every member of the band has a bears which has led me to wonder if having a beard makes you anxious. Certainly there are bearded people out there who are not anxious at all and who are very comfortable in their skin but if a beard makes you anxious  - shave it off that's my advice.

Aaanyway the four of them obviously love their 90s noise-rock as they sound like a lot of the bands of that era i'm thinking people like Urusei Yatsura, Ligament and all that lot. Having a Scotsman on vocals there's obviously that kind of whiskey drenched melancholy to it that you don't get with an Englishman. Though they have some of the dynamics of the Twilight Sad their sound is smoother and less taut. In fact I'm finding it sounding a lot like a much much much heavier Frightened Rabbit. I added the third 'much' in there to prove that I had actually listened to the record and wasn't making my comparisons too easy. 

For fans of Chemikal Underground in the '90s.
