Auckland is slipping back into dark 80s dance rock and the new champion is 1995. Their new EP Guilt has managed to capture a sound of bleak urbanness whilst keeping a good energy that would certainly close the staunchest of arcs at an Auckland gig.

The songs are quick and snappy with an excited urgency, but it's not until the vocals come in that 1995 show their cards. There's an intensity that increases as soon as the chant/sing vocals lay down their orders.

Bands like Gordons even Devo spring to mind but with a bit more bite.

Have a listen. Recommended.
