This Brooklyn-based experimental quartet have crafted their best record yet, an artfully genre-transcending and forward-thinking masterpiece.
Elements of post-punk, grime, electro, tribal and pop coalesce on Saint Dymphna for a trippy yet totally cohesive end product.
The band works beyond vocal and guitar hooks, crafting tight, catchy drumbeats on lead track Bebey and Afoot. While the record is a solid listen front to back, standout moments include Princes, which features Ghana-London rapper Tinchy Stryder, and the breathless vocals on the ghostly House Jam.
Watch for this album to pop up all over year-end best-of lists next month.
