Fantastic energy adding some much needed edge to an at times insipid industry. Love this band, put this on your must listen list.

For those angry about our world today, Brutalism is the record we've been waiting for.

Vivacious, loud and essential. Blends a phenomenal concoction of noise rock, punk and grunge and delivers it with all the sternness of a sledgehammer. The pace is fast and urgent, opening with three outstanding tracks, expanding on its sound in its middle section and dragging itself to a potent and heavy finish, particularly notable on 'Exeter' which acts as the emotional centre of the album.

It's the lyrics that really impress me most; they're on point and vital, combining political themes, social issues and other observations on life in general seamlessly. Their simplicity matches the hard-edged sound of the album, conveying their meaning superbly.

This feels like the album we need right now in the UK. It captures the mood many are feeling and expresses it with anger behind such opinions. Albums this relevant to the present don't come around often, making Brutalism that bit more special.

What you have here is a moody, angry, shouty record that delivers itself with all the ferocity of a cannonball through a brick wall, captures the mood of its time with brilliant accuracy and ties itself together with great structure and a new sound that promises to age brilliantly and develop into something that will define the late 2010s.

As the album title suggests this is some brutal heavy pounding music and hard hitting lyrics, but there is some humour and hope to be found in there too. Most importantly though it sounds great and keeps your attention throughout the whole record.
