Kill Your Boyfriend / New Candys


(4tx, 10'' vinyl - Shy rec 2015)

Two bands, two tracks each, double a-side split single, 10'' vinyl disc (digital download included), Shyrec offers us a two sip of these two underrated italian bands. 
Kill Your Boyfriend kick noisily the beats out of a drum machine, and fry their fuzz gears over electro serpentines: Isaac is more rooted into 80s post-punk, it's obsessively leaded by a synth, male vocals are swallowed into delay/reverb efx, and guitars are aching of a sick distortion. Slightly differently, the other song, Nicolas would be the topping of that acid cake eaten by the fans of Skywave/Cerimony/A Place to Bury Strangers, such it's a blast and danceable at the same time.
New Candys' chemical recipe verge more on a psychedelic drift, like their beautiful LP Stars reach the Abyss showed a couple of years ago. Hypnotic and sedated with Dark Love, faster and acid pop garage with Surf 2. The quartet know how to write a song and keep the good vibe on, wisely dosing vintage and ideas. Their new record, release due to this year, is going to be mixed by John Wills of Loop/Pumajaw.

not yet, probably nobody cares, or nobody cared enough to tell something. Also: nobody reads komakino.
