run, WALK! / sirs - Split

Everyone likes a good split, whether it’s banana or otherwise, but this particular effort is noisy, heavy and full of chaotic fun. First up are the brilliant Winchester-formed and Holy Roar-signed bass/drums duo run, WALK! who offer up some tasty, discordant blasts of distorted, screeching cacophony. ‘Rainhouse’ begins with an almost surf-like bass rhythm before they ramp up the noise and vocalist Matthew Pickering-Copley screams his lungs to bits out across the juddering percussion. ‘Straight Lines’ does anything but stay in a straight line, instead running riot through blasts of crazed riffing.

sirs also make quite a racket, albeit a slightly more melodious kind, with ‘Buzzard Kill (river)’ sounding a little like At The Drive-In but with a severe case of ADD. ‘Bering Straight’ is much the same, turning up the feedback and making you want to jump around a lot, and if that’s how you feel after then it’s a job well done.

We need your help

Running a website like The Digital Fix - especially one with over 20 years of content and an active community - costs lots of money and we need your help. As advertising income for independent sites continues to contract we are looking at other ways of supporting the site hosting and paying for content.

You can help us by using the links on The Digital Fix to buy your films, games and music and we ask that you try to avoid blocking our ads if you can. You can also help directly for just a few pennies per day via our Patreon - and you can even pay to have ads removed from the site entirely.
