Album Review: Love of Diagrams - Blast

24 February 2015 | 1:50 pm | Madeleine Laing

"Still plenty to sink your teeth into."


Blast
is the heavy dream-pop three-piece’s fourth record, and thankfully they haven’t yet been tempted to get all polished and perfect. That might sound backhanded, but it’s rare to see a band understanding exactly what makes them great and delivering it with guts and precision like this.

The constant low-key, sweet-yet-tough vocal sound is cool, but lacks a bit in dynamics, amplified by how compressed the album feels in general. Though not a particularly short record, Blast rockets past in a haze of raw declarations and driving guitar. Still plenty to sink your teeth into.
