In similar vein to their last EP Movie Was Bad a track surfaces with the strange title of VHS #[number] – songs delineated as such are a sub series of tracks that are inspired by a classic horror film, which bears a loose resemblance to the release as a whole – in this case Texas Chainsaw Massacre with the EP reflective of an underlying violence beneath the surface of masculinity in the USA and VHS #2 (Masks) specifically – pondering that this is a result of upbringing and environment.

The second of the four tracks on the EP – VHS #1 (A Body) – was revealed less than a dozen hours ago.

Having had the opportunity to listen to two of the tracks, with each being of different countenance, I can attest on this basis that Movie Was Bad is something to add to the collection.

With the option of either the opening song You Came a luscious layering of gazey guitar led by a beguiling vocal or VHS #1 (A Body) to feature there is little possibility I would choose anything other than a track that has a bass guitar strung so loosely you can almost see the wires poking out of the speakers with the synth taking supporting role as guitar and percussion add a dark presence with the sparse vocal menacing the ears.
