The third studio release from Singapore’s Hardihood indeed treads on new territories. Since the departure of their vocalist, it has not stopped the remaining trio from embarking on more journeys, rediscovering and rewiring their musical anatomy. Veering towards more progressive and technical song-writing structures, their sound still traverses familiar grounds whilst skidding extraneous boundaries. Four tracks of ear-pounding, heart-stopping, melodically-memorable, post-rock | post-punk-hardcore dissonance. (Imagine GYBE’s ‘Yanqui Uxo’ rocket troops going on a roadtrip with Russian Circles). Not programmed for the casual listener or the meek of minds.
