We hear and read about a lot of bands being influenced and/or replicating the C86 sound. Here is a band, who draw (ex) members of acts like The Royal We, Rose McDowall’s band, Anxiety, Kaspar Hauser and Shopping in their ranks, that go back further to the sounds found during the era of the C81 tape.
Their sound draws inspiration from the shadowy and gothic elements of post punk bands – think The Cure and thanks to the vocals the likes of Siouxsie and The Banshees and early Altered Images. That’s not to say this is a carbon copy of any of those bands at all and the two tracks here are fresh, modern takes on a sometimes tired genre.
Available on 7″ and digital formats from Not Unloved Records.
