The Great Regression
There’s an ominous build to these songs that results in each of them progressively morphing into pummelling, pounding, riffy anthems - an indomitable & incendiary force.
We’ve worshipped at the Ditz altar for a few years (they came together in Brighton in 2015), through their various line-up changes & developments in sound but 2022 finally delivered their debut album...& what a fucking incredible achievement it is!! Even those of us who came to this with the highest of expectations have been left awestruck.
Their dynamic, experimental punk is savage, cacophonous & urgent but complex, layered & considered, so every listen will deliver new thrills & previously unprocessed aural assaults whilst also revealing a surprising & obverse melody & warmth.
Abrasive but accessible, their music carries themes of personal identity, particularly within the context of masculinity & femininity & insecurities around gender. ‘The Great Regression’ is full of anger, rage & despair but it also showcases their love of childish jokes, literature...& pedals. Many, many pedals contribute to the ever-growing pile of equipment they gathered in order to make unusual sounds during the recording process.
"A vital reminder that, in order to embrace therapeutic progress, you need to regress. A taut, well-honed package it’s a brutal assault on the senses” - Loud & Quiet
