"The rough-as-guts production serves the band's aesthetic perfectly and there's no artifice here."
Aficionados of Brisbane underground rock'n'roll will find plenty of familiar faces in Eyes Ninety — who share membership with The Standing 8 Counts, Chinese Burns and Eat Laser Scumbag! (among others) — but this new outfit is staunchly its own beast.
Authentic beds of swampy, distinctly Australian rock'n'roll (occasionally veering into punk realms) underlay strangled howls of disaffection and rebellion, verging on near-nihilism at times. The rough-as-guts production serves the band's aesthetic perfectly and there's no artifice here — everything is played with complete conviction, because this lot mean business.
