Aussie two-piece DZ Deathrays come at you like Stephenson's Rocket in their song Gebbie Street. The gain on the guitars, which has been turned beyond 11, gives it a crunchy, earthy and distinctly dirty feel, like a hot summer's day digging holes in Brisbane. The sound is very spacious, as if it were recorded in an underground cavern, with tiny bongos delicately flitting in and out every now and then, adding an intriguing new dimension. For the denouement, it crescendos into a barrage of noise during which singer Shane Parsons barks at you relentlessly, demanding your full attention. It's powerful, visceral stuff - we can only imagine how it'll translate when they play UK dates later this month.
