The amount of nodding in the video is a little unnerving.

Pretty great, taken them far too long to release something new. Getting Cold Shoulders vibes from this.

I have, but I don't like grime in general, so the appeal was always going to be limited for me

one thing i will say about this band is they have a fantastic guitarist. great riffs and always gets my head bobbing.

i just wish they would really experiment with their sound cuz as of now all their material is a 3 at best

Might be a bit early to ask them to experiment when all they have is one ep of pretty original material. Djent rap combo? I don't know anyone that does that.

ive heard one other band that does it but ive forgotten their name


tbh i think they can go places. get more complex with the guitars. add in some spacey ambient stuff sometimes or something i dunno

Could be. I just think it might be a bit early to be asking that. They could evolve in interesting ways down the line tho

yeah its an interesting concept that i dont think is as terrible as everyone made out

i think a lot of it was people being put off by the rappers accents and sorta grimey style (a lot of brits were put off by it)

and djent gets a lot of shit.

The problem I have is that djent is too polished, but i don't think it would work any other way. Same applies for the song ^

This song stands out compared to the EP stuff. Actual hooks for once.
