Hamborghinni - Not The Best At Anything

Hamborghinni slide out the grittiest of treble-ranging noise, clattering their way down beachside past rollerbladers and babes, sometimes catching a beat or rhythm from pedestrian boomboxes and car stereos but mostly just kicking it with Harry Pussy-style guitar screes and a massively gnarled crash of broken cymbals and faux-frustration that is otherwise their own. These instant compositions occupy a weirdly tight space and it sounds they might split thoughts between just overt audience confrontation and genuinely engaging ventures through tectonic textures given how those (non)beats tease and disappear. Hamborghinni is the band of Seripop (Yannick Desranleau and Chloe Lum) from Montreal and even if they're pretty apt at crafting slucey grey avalanches of noise (as their other project AIDS Wolf also exhibits) their total masters at mega-colourful and ecstatic design that'll be showcased over the weekend in Newcastle at The Baltic.
