with this self-titled debut, the duo of andy r & craig nice fulfil the booming promise of their 7” noise-pop anthems.

leaders of a scene based in colorado around a space called the rhinoceroplis (with fellow bands pictureplane, woodsman & hollagramz), the pair’s shifting, epic avant pop is made with the sole purpose of losing yourself, both mind & body, inside of it. the band continues to mine the pulse-&-clap cues of modern club rap, with the intricacies of andy's durutti column-inspired, circular guitar lines more to the fore, while blissfully loud melodies, with full force, punchy drums & a savage lo-fi mentality form several strands of booming sound that merge to form one almighty aqueous, melodic dirge. they are at once oblique, pounding & glassy, melodic & exploratory.
