‘Tall Whites’ broods and eerily spirals into a darker more deeply atmospheric side to doops. Twinkling light guitars ache and pierce through the throbbing snappy beat as the soft vocals coo through the suspenseful verses. This track wriggles, creeps and seeps into your mind and scratches at your musical membrane, awakening all the senses. With a whistling feature adding a dash of cheer into the stewing dark concoction this track is mesmerising and thrilling to the core. Flickering rhythms build the tension as the vocals slither into the kinetic chorus. doops build the track masterfully layering each element meticulously as guitars flash like lightning through the thick mesmeric soundscapes before the mind crushing crescendo. Another fascinating track from doops.

‘Laika’ is an abrasive, raw gash of alternative rock at its most blistering, mind dissolving best. These guys whack out this hyperactive number as it travels at a brisk speed ready for a brawl and jam packed with shrilling guitar distortion and a snappy exhilarating rhythm. Coming in at a short 1 minute and 25 seconds, this song is one pure concoction, distilled to its finest dizzying dosage. The punk attitude is doused on top of raw guitar lacerations. Heavy, meaty beats push the track into your head with a thrilling, bashing force while spacey acid fizzling riffs keep everything at a dynamic high. The rapid lyrics spit through the frenzied soundscapes with an effortless ease as the track builds to a paralyzing guitar solo. These guys have a fresh penetrating sound that is sure to drive your blood pressure to the roof in the most invigorating way.
