These awsome people have been so kind as to send us their work for publishing yet again…Having played live in Athens this past year, and having listened to this, it is safe to say they easily belong in the top European postpunk bands. They are active, they sound fresh and not bored, they love what they’re doing. This is great music to wake up to, both energetic and dark, balanced equally…
So, having improved their playing skills, and after 10 years as a band, they’re tighter than ever. Interesting guitar riffs that don’t fall into the indy late 90s brit sound (such a common
mistake-reference these days). I like the now slight german accent in the british vocals, it sounds original without ending up strange in the ear, they have perfected their English. It makes their songs their own. And It (it being the postpunk genre) manages to sound original even in 2014, 30 years from its first sprouting in the 80s with PIL, thousand of bands having aspired to be post punk, few ones ARE so comfortably, easily, without their noses up in the air, both post (my preferred definition for post as a tag, post=a reflection on, and then whatever follows), AND punk.
Good work. guys.
yeah, i guess today just failed. (listen to the song with s/t as the LP)
