DAVIDIANS: Night Terrors: 7”

May 07, 2015

A heady mix of oddball hardcore—I’m hearing bits of Die Kreuzen and Saccharine Trust in there—and the fringier, noisier side of post-punk, resulting in two tunes that are alternately arty and aggressive. I know there are ties to Double Negative and Safe Words, and there are definitely traces of those bands in evidence here, but they keep the thrashin’ and the overt gloomin’ more or less at bay, opting instead for an off-kilter, restrained-yet-still-noisy assault likely to appeal to both camps. Good, good stuff.
