In parallel with the reality of two musicians who live thousands of miles apart, communicating through the internet their music too has an spacious quality. The soundtrack mixes instrumentation and electronics delivering hypnotic dreamy soundscapes through which the mesmerising vocal slips in and out of focus.

The output, whilst having a dark layering running through it, also has a captivating beauty in which the listener becomes spell-bound.

From the forthcoming EP – Qualia.

A five track release (available on bandcamp) in which The Nightmare Police deliver both punchy indie-rock and emo infused contemplatives. Whilst ground that has been much trodden, nonetheless, the trio are able to offer a refreshing take providing the listener with roughly fourteen minutes of enjoyable songs that isn’t time wasted to get to know.

The closing track Where Were You is a fine display in which the trio are able to vary tempo and temper with clean and energised drum-kit surrounded by a hustling bass and guitar which is given space to deliver expressive rips and roars with vocal merging in to the overall composition.

Tipple the speakers to upper volume to best enjoy the output as registers of upper notes and lower beams sling their hooks across the room in a luxurious soundscape of finely fingered twitching guitar notes which slip inside and out of meandering octave and delay pedals giving the music considerable direction of travel as the thumping percussion and bass threaten to break the sub-woofer through which the vocal fights for space for its own intervention – though far from sounding like an idea of disparate concepts – it all lays in narrative which has the listener entranced.

From the EP the second of the five tracks – Better Days.

The English melancholic-wave duo Betty Pulls A Fast One recently revealed their latest track.

Betty Pulls A Fast One - Swing Like Summer

Betty Pulls A Fast One – Swing Like Summer

Frequently featured since the middle of last year Betty Pulls A Fast One always return to the table with a new idea.

In Swing Like Summer – one is minded of the sadness of Strange Fruit by Billie Holiday from 1939. Although there is approaching an eighty year time gap – though Billie Holiday was more explicit in lyric in Swing Like Summer that same sentiment of societal deconstruction is evident in the pianoforte led ballad that lays wrapped in the ears long after the notes have faded in to silence.
