Went to another gig on Saturday, chosen purely on spec. Sista Sekunden at Garage – Swedish hardcore – all crashing and bouncing around – in Swedish – OK act, but support act Paper (also Swedish) were perfect from the first chord of Ears Keep Ringing. Perfection.
Three piece Guitar (a Burns), Keyboard (Korg)/Synth (Roland)/Vocals & Drums. The keyboard baseline & rhythm with synth and guitar as moody riffs and textural drone over the top. Static performance – all in the sound – constant yet subtly complex. Paper. Loved ’em.
The opener “Ears Keep Ringing”
The sound is based around the frustration of punk, the delicacy of pop melody and the hypnotic power of repetition.
“Before That Day” excellent.
