SEE: Ditz’s ‘Role Model’ is righteously noisy

BRIGHTON noiseniks Ditz have finally come down from the world of download-only and brought us five tracks of guitar-killin’ wax, in the shape of the 5 Songs EP.

They’ve released a video for “Role Model”, taken from the EP, and it’s a very fine 129 seconds of towering guitar abuse. 

The track sneaks on a Mike Patton-style stalker whisper, before bursting up and out into big f**k-off riff noise, dark and heavy. “Oh could it be you? / Could it be … you?” rails vocalist Cal, all snarl. 

Cal explains: “‘Role Model’ is about peer envy, which I think is something that most artists suffer from. 

“It’s a horrible trait that stops you from being happy for other people and leaves you with a skewed perspective of what you’re making and its original goals. Sitting back from what you’ve made is the only way to see it the way you’ve intended.” Righteous.

5 Songs also contains previous download-only singles “Seeking Arrangement”, “Gayboy” and “Total 90”, all crowned with their noisy, lip-curlin’ grind through Peaches’ “Fuck The Pain Away”, which they claim was “previously only released on a decomposing peach”. Hmmm, OK, we’ll believe ya; but c’mon, who isn’t a sucker for a decent cover?

You can buy 5 Songs at Ditz’s Bandcamp page: it’s available on pink and black vinyl, with a one-time only pressing run on the pink. Go get some big Sussex noise into yo head.
