THE ILLS [Bratislava, SK]
The Ills are being put into a post-rock box, however it is also shoegaze and elements of math-rock and prog-rock that can be heard in their songs. They are definitely most characterized by their live performances where their musical skills, intense atmosphere combined with intimate parts meet with punk attitude and almost hardcore drive. Their new LP ‘Disco Volante / Mt. Average’ is out on February 19.
SLOW WORRIES [Amsterdam, NL]
Slow Worries combine dreamy melodies with solid dissonance. While taking cues from the likes of Helium, The Spinanes & Slant 6, their 2 guitars/drums lineup betrays a post-hardcore influence as well. The band has been working on new recordings.
NEIGHBOURS BURNING NEIGHBOURS [Rotterdam, NL]
Promising new band from the Rotterdam guitar underground, with several familiar faces and more than several smashing noise/pop songs. No recordings yet, but the blistering live-session of ‘Lunar Hair Care’ tells you all you need to know for now.
