An ancient arpeggiator blasts out a two note refrain.....colossal bursts of guitar noise teased out by a violin bow means it already sounds like Giorgio Moroder having a massive coronary by the time the the metronomic drum tatoo starts. And then it becomes REALLY intense.Their absence of compromise and a sound so brutally propulsive it would deny any attempts at dilution, recontextualisation or polish. Never before has disco sounded so beautifully cruel – NME.
People have born witness to something unconventional indeed: a set where voilin bows violently attack guitar strings. Where tribal rythmns ride along a storm of chanted vocals and drones, all processed through effects that make them sound dark and unearthly.- Artrocker 10”
