Review: HDSPNS - VIVIDISM EP

Tuesday 17th September, 2013 9:17AM

Auckland four-piece HDSPNS' second release VIVIDISM is a strong development in song-craft. Directing the overtly schizophrenic styling's of 2012's EAI EP, they funnel a mix of math-rock and post-punk into five tracks that explore frantic tempo shifts and jittery cross rhythms.

While early Foals and Battles are influential points of reference, the Aucklanders succeed in carving a sound all their own. The production is raw, complementing the coarse guitar and shouty vocals, and while each song jolts from intricate time signatures to thrashing outbursts of noise, it never feels too crammed. The key strength lies in their rough-around-the-edges charm; a band united in purity of expression over perfectionism.
