Bent "Mattress Springs" 7"
Side A: Mattress Springs, Bless You
Side B: So Nice So Cheap, Chew Song
Angular, post punk trio hailing from Brisbane, Australia. Swift on the heels of their startling debut CD “Snakes and Shapes” (Emotional Response), the band have a cracking dynamic follow up.
Four tracks of inspired and skewed pop - raw and beautiful.
Comparisons are inevitable, though potentially lazy, masking the bands originality. (However, The Raincoats, Kleenex and early Slits may give you a suggestion of the bands sonic intent). Heidi’s vocals are joyous in delivery, almost primal in execution. Spacious drums, present a unique clatter and clang provided by Skye, freeing up the bass to provide rhythmic anchor. The guitar, (Glen), is remarkable; inventive and unhinged.
