New from London-based Swedish Death Candy, the fittingly titled ‘Oh My’ casually blends poetic metaphor with heavy distortion, with carefully curated harmonies lending a touch of the 70s to boot. Famed for wild and drawn-out live performances across the capital, the band let guitars tumble in early, already making a justified claim to 2017’s dirtiest riff – until two-thirds in, a wall of noise breaks loose. Skipping the niceties and threatening to melt faces, it thrillingly crucifies anything that came before. Swedish Death Candy: come for the candy, stay for the death.
