Out today is the new 7″ from Brooklyn post-punks Big Bliss, Contact / Override, on Exit Stencil Recordings. Recorded last Autumn with Jeff Berner at Studio G in Brooklyn while writing their upcoming album, the tracks felt to the band like standalone singles rather than something that fitted in to their vision of the album.
Contact is this emphatic slice of shoegaze/post-punk, the sourness in the chords is washed almost out of sight by the waves of feedback guitar as the band lay down a peach of a melody, equally scuzzed up and sweetened by the guitars and the vocal harmonies. Flip side Override delivers on similar fronts, proving the band can write things that are both big and…err, well, blissful. Hence the name, presumably.
