abrasive explorations & dirge digging skronk that references bands like cabaret voltaire, chrome, & early sonic youth.

the recording of ‘the horror’ involved a healthy dose of improvisation & in-studio writing, giving the album a darkly unhinged organic feeling with hints of the birthday party & those darker back alleys of aussie post-punk. thematically, the horror finds pop. 1280 stepping out of cyberspace onto the deserted beaches, highways & plains of a surreal hell, this is a road album for the post-apocalypse. “a squealing, stomping bit of postpunk evilness that gives me vague flashbacks to sonic youth’s ‘death valley 69’” – stereogum.
