holy state EP (4-track digipak CD, £5.75)label: dance to the radio
Musically enlightened beyond their years, this band take influence from post-hardcore legends Girls Against Boys, alt-rock gods Jesus Lizard, and indie institution The Fall at their darkest and most rhythmically driven, combined with a hint of Phil Spector’s Wall Of Sound and a nod to Man Or Astroman?’s sci-fi surf oddness. This EP is the sound of a band truly homing in on something special and individual. “A refreshing slap in the face to knock all the indie dross out of your ear holes” - Artrocker, “The Leeds quartet play a discordant, cathartic and utterly classy line in hardcore” - Rock Sound, “The kind of urgent rhythm that prises you out of your seat through sheer force” - Kerrang!, “There’s this grinding intensity to their music that sounds interesting simply because no one’s really doing the whole dirtpunk revival” - NME.
