The pronounced fuzz in OMG (available on bandcamp) gives the track an even more scathing sense than the already acerbic lyric which revolves around how to many not being the immediate centre of attention results in temper tantrum – while asking the question – is life really that petty?

In OMGLos And The Deadlines are able to deliver social commentary wrapped inside a sense of humour. Changes in pace highlight the chapters of the song with bass and percussion highlighting the sections of emphasis upon which they drop into silence.

Mixing elements of the disparate cultural backgrounds and musical influences Los And The Deadlines deliver a rock rooted sound with lyrics reflecting on everyday life which add a sardonic nature to the sounds.

Forming back in 2010 the line-up has undergone changes to the bass and percussion which has led to an evolution of the sound from earlier material. There remain elements of maths-rock and jazz derivatives, which are driven by a steely bass / drum combination that keeps the music driving forwards. To accommodate the evolution of the sounds a five track EP Part One: Bank was recently released, which, you will have guessed it to be followed up in due course with part two.

Los And The Deadlines, with their iconic style, do seek to challenge the listener, however, accepting the questions is a worthwhile exercise. The latest release spreads the sounds far and wide, enabling listeners to find something of attention within the material and once you have found your own personal hook the rest of Part One: Bank makes perfect sense.

A touch too grown-up for me to add to the everyday playlist, this suits well on more thoughtful days.
