Now here's a seven inch from a new Australian band that show a smart talent for some interesting 'mo. First song “Bump” chimes into earshot with some very disconcerting sounding guitar and hefty bassline, a little reminiscent of Indian Summer perhaps, but done particularly well here. The song builds up from this and the insistent, panicky spoken vocals into shouted vocals and a powerful finale. It's that brand of moody, mid 90s emo that doesn't get old when done in the right way, and Nebraska are well and truly on the right track here. It's followed with “Twenty-Three” which flies off the handle pretty quickly after a pretty intro that actually sounds a bit like Your Neighbour the Liar. The final track is “Low Tide” which fills a whole side of the record, and therefore makes plenty of time for softer twinkly bits with plaintive vocals. Again, these bits reminds me of YNTL. They surround those parts with noisier outbursts that you'd expect from this style.

Good start here, look forward to hearing where they go with it.
