A ten track album (available on bandcamp) that winds its way deep in to the mind of the listener as the quartet reflect on a world of social-injustice and deliver intriguing queries and angles of perspective all wrapped inside combinations of synth and guitar which have a dystopian presence that looms through the room with the pacey percussion inviting the listener to become involved with the music on the dance-floor while the immersive and expressive vocal unerringly sweeps through melodies and sneering contempt.

The music minds of the likes of the ’80s UK protest bands such as Crass, Poison Girls, Canker Opera etc. with the politically charged message and challenging constructs which veer from structured rock’n’roll to almost experimental spikes – hence with no doubt – as longer stay readers will know – a sound I have no hesitation in recommending to add to the essentials of life playlist.

The sixth track is Silly Me.
