Sounds Like Hell: Super Luxury

Thursday, January 8th, 2015

Sounds Like Hell is a regular feature on noise rock, doom and sludge.

The sounds of Super Luxury creep up on you like an attractive stranger offering their hand in a gesture of friendship only to pull you closer and thrust a plant a knee of your babymakers. At least that’s the feeling I get from ‘Constant Delicious’, the first of two cuts currently streamable from their forthcoming debut LP Ten Solid Years of Applause. Though the opening drums bear more than a passing resemblance to Future of the Left’s ‘Sheena is a T-shirt Salesman’, there are no welcoming notes or hooks to sink your teeth into here. Instead the fivesome offer a healthy barrage of snarling noise rock sprinkled with punk rock braggacio and a let’s-finish-this-fucking-song-already urgency. With snarling, reptilian guitars and fondness for enunciating every word with maximum gusto, this is music for party-crashers fleeing the scene of the crime.

Ten Years of Solid Applause is out on March 21.
