Full of half-hearted fuzz riffs and basement jams, In Elevators self-titled debut is tight, snotty and pogo-worthy.
Complete with youthful angst and lo-fi gristle, the opening distorted groove of ‘The Ship is on Fire!’ is surprising relaxed, as vocalist Matt – these guys don’t get bogged-down with formalities – is unmoved in his monotone delivery, while the remaining four-piece sound agitated, noisy and ever-so-slightly pissed-off.
‘The Glares’ meanwhile, contains joint motor-mouthing finger-pointing, as Kendall’s focused croon compliments Matt well. Chunky power chords and guitars awash with amplified buzz return in ‘For The Birds’ as Matt declares that there’s “nothing here for me, in this bed of lies,” with genuine, college-punk defiance.
