1. Descend
2. Carnival

‘Descend’ is a 99 second act of possessed euphoria that fuses sharply angled pop, Lene Lovich harpy-esque vocals, and a furious rockabilly outro. Not to mention an impressive chorus made up of one chord, no singing, and a guitar being thrown on the floor! ‘Carnival’ is reminiscent of The Violets live show; Tuneful guitar lines and a feedback-wracked punk blitzkrieg. Horrible noises sound melodic, and melodies which induce shivers in the spine.
