the band temper noisy experimentation with cool-headed, shoegazey post-punk - no age fans are going to love this.
the songs, coupled with the nervous energy behind them, propel ‘800’ forward more than anything else. their dense riffage & thumping drum machines are brought to the forefront with greater clarity than ever before. The prevailing mood continues to be a kind of melancholy reminiscent of the romanticism in 80s new wave, cemented by Jenia Bichovski’s punchy vocal delivery & impressionistic lyrics. We hear him plead with various friends or lovers throughout, reminisce about his youth on ‘13 Again’, & grapple with his complex feelings about Kiev on the My Bloody Valentine-esque ‘Night Lamp’. no age fans need to hear this!
