Artist: The Death Notes
Title: The White EP
Genre: Post-Punk / Alt-Rock
Release Date: 23rd September 2016
Label: Sonic Disruptor


Review Flash

Nottingham UK four-piece THE DEATH NOTES have a formidable live presence, and on this recent studio release they combine that post-punk passion, with a finely tuned sense of melody and pace. Opener ‘Sentience’ bounds about like a rebooted ECHO AND THE BUNNYMEN, and on ‘Eye To Eye’ there’s some wonderfully sparkly guitar underpinning strong vocals and a driving sense of purpose. It`s seriously good stuff. ‘Akuphase’ is all gnarly and fuzzy, a layered mid-phase KILLING JOKE stomp, leaving ‘Victims’ to round things off. Echo drenched vocals and a gently psychedelic verse give way to a snarling chorus awash with waves of synths and some seriously pissed-off guitars. It ends a taut, tight set of songs of high calibre with some interesting ideas and dynamics keeping things nicely buoyant throughout.

Conclusion: THE DEATH NOTES play to their strengths here, and are true to the EP format, releasing four equally passionate songs that push and shove constantly for your attention. Worth giving.

Rating: 8 / 10
