NEUROTIC FICTION: Romance: 7”

Sep 29, 2020

Four songs of ’80s anxiety pop. Stuff like this helps me reaffirm that I’m a fan of music first and am heavily drawn to punk second. That’s not meant to be a slight to this band in any way, only an acknowledgement that they’re a little outside the punk wheelhouse. They might be more akin something like Siouxie And The Banshees mixed with Manchester Orchestra (mostly their re-imagined record Hope). I think they have really solid melodies and strong vocals overlaying a jangly, dark, post-punk sound. There are bright guitar riffs and deep, muddy bass lines with heavy drums and a soft and shrill vocalist that I really like. It definitely puts me in an angsty and creative mood, which can be a hard frame of mind to activate. –Kayla Greet (Specialist Subject, specialistsubjectrecords.co.uk)
