Straight from label extraordinaire Speedy Wunderground, the new single from Scottibrains is magnificently messy. Layering distorted guitars into a destructive force, loose percussion holds the almost-instrumental together while squawls of feedback and vocals coalesce into a swampy, spiky mire.
The mysterious four-piece conspire to send the listener into a dizzy headrush, building something remarkably chaotic yet confusingly static thanks to a chugging audio illusion. The ever-increasing danger ultimately amounts to a wired sense of fun like King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard caught in the grasp of a blinding hangover. ‘Sustained Threat’ indeed.
