COLD AND DISTANT


Holy fuck, it’s polyrhythms and metal riffs and there’s some guy going meedly-meedly-meedly on his guitar in the corner and it’s like if My Disco! worked out how to be interesting and if Pretty Girls Make Graves turned back the clock and started playing punk rock again. CHEAT SHEET FOR MY DISCO!: minimalism is only interesting if you explore the edges of the box! If you just sit in the middle and hammer away on your guitar it gets old real quick! Apparently Fire! Santa Rosa, Fire! are supes young or something but they’ve worked out that to make it enjoyable you build strong and call it quits before it gets boring, so well fucking done.

Jeez - who are these Fire dudes!! Such edgey tricky riffs over that incredible base. Aren't they all supposed to be just out of school or something? The dude on the drums - his rhythms are so... dammit!... can't think of the word. The chick is gorgeous - with just the right O F**** off-ism that puts her right out there . Gotta be the next world beaters out of Adelaide
