The latest track from London duo Crushed Beaks is an intense ride. The instruments don’t compliment each other so much as they merge into one another, its a terrifyingly overwhelming 3 minute blast of guitars that sound like drums, drums that sound like riots and vocals that sound like nothing we’ve heard this year. Somehow though, despite the whole ‘sonic assault’ thing, the effect is utter euphoria (rather than confusion/discord and/or terror). They recorded the tune with Rory Atwell, who does more work than would normally be considered normal, and its going to feature on their debut Ep which drops on the 16th of September. Crushed Beaks have always been perched just outside of headliner status but, with Tropes, it seems that they’ve at last found their feet.
