Dream pop meets post-punk on this EP from Posh Lost which is their first release for almost two and a half years. Recorded in the aftermath of the US elections and the surrounding political anxiety the EP opens with arguably it’s strongest track in the shape Denizen which is a full on retro sounding post-punk effort.
It’s gloomy stuff, no surprise given the source subject, and none more on Hours Passing which takes it’s cue from New Order’s debut Movement. Only on Cortisol does the band fail to deliver as the mismatch of dreampop and post-punk proves too much but they soon redeem themselves on the shouty and punchy Fortune. Promising.
Get it from here.
