Once upon a time, No Broadcast operated under the name Anthesiac. Their 2011 Null and Void EP was a timely reminder that Christchurch has a vibrant and rapidly evolving music scene. Now we are in 2014 they are back, new moniker in tow, but still more than able of rocking your boots off.

No Broadcast starts on a high note with the surging power of 'Reset the Sun'. It becomes apparent very quickly that Josh Braden, Chris Self, and Sam Hood make an impressive racket for just a three piece operation. Only a few tracks further in, the sheer power of 'More Wrong Than Right' blows the record wide open and they ride the cascading rhythms into outer space. This sets the scene for the B-side which expands on these cosmic themes without ever allowing the formidable roar of the amp stacks to fade away. And by the end of 'Driven' when those amps are left smoldering in a heap it only feels appropriate to bask in the warmth and enjoy the afterglow.

What you have with No Broadcast is an expansive but gritty rock record the likes of which are becoming harder to find in this day and age.
