The English grunge quintet Muffin released the single swim.float.drown on the 20th.
Unlike music of theirs previously featured swim.float.drown, the follow-up to their eponymous EP, has a psychedelic filter to the mixing desk that melts sublimely with the sludgy footsteps of their core sound.
The slumped bass and puddled drum skins are still given the room to throw mud through the speakers, while the guitars flit through the room in an array of kaleidoscopic colours with the menacing vocal creating an industrial nihilism which deftly earths the composition and delivers the rabbit punches.
Gaining traction nationally this new track can only help raise the visibility of Muffin to a wider audience.
swim.float.drown is available on Amazon.*

Muffin is an English grunge quintet.
I do apologise to everyone for this very late feature as it was in early February I was given advanced notification of their eponymous EP, which came out the weekend before last.
A four track release of high impact rock which clumps, like mud on the wall, as it surfaces from the speakers creating an intricate soundtrack of dampened notes and fiery temper in which the audience becomes drawn.
Twin guitars enable Muffin to create music that fires in two different directions simultaneously while the thumping bass pulls the two six stringers in to a cohesive pattern while the impressive drum-kit creates the fireworks as it controls the shapes of the songs through which the intense vocal adds a faintly unnerving menace.
My pick of the release is the second track – Welcome To The Modern Age.
Muffin – Ep – Muffin is available on iTunes.*
