There seems to be an air of menace about this week’s New Noise. I’m not sure why. From the off we sink into the other-worldly swirl of Planningtorock’s rework of Creep’s ‘You’, and from there the clouds never really manage to part.
Once The Twerps are done sticking their own twist on garage rock, we’re deep in dark disco with Guy Andrews, gasping for air in the thick funk of Hot Head Show, and petrified of the outrageously exciting Black Flag-sampling Death Grips.
Even Little Eva’s ‘The Locomotion’ is given it’s own sinister chug thanks to U.S Girls, The British Public are all riffs and wry eyebrows, while Gala Drop hypnotise with their textured Portugese patterns. By the time Thousands ponder sewn up mouths and the onset of rain in their enchanting ‘Everything Turned Upside Down’, it feels like we’ve literally reached the end.
Thank God then for the song’s climactic mantra, ‘See the sun go on and on'; finally providing us with that hopeful hug we’ve so desperately craved
