The Brighton-based quintet unleash this anthemic post-punk beastie that recalls furious parquet courts vocals set against television guitarwork.

‘The Dial’ is a song that’s existed in the band’s live set for a while, and after label-head-honcho Dan Carey saw the band play live, he thought he could help the band to give it a fresh feel – speeding it up, deconstructing and rearranging it. the track channels post-punk royalty such as Talking Heads with Verlaine Television-esque guitars and a vocal evoking ‘Losing My Edge’ era LCD over a NEU drumbeat. Also brought to mind are more modern contemporaries like Parquet Courts and enigmatic wunderkind Tom Vek. We love it!
