Oxford band The Dolly Mops DIY-indie has this unshined, almost scruffiness about it, harking back to those halcyon 80s days when this sort of thing (musically and aesthetically speaking) first appeared. It’s full of frayed at the edges guitar sounds, taking one step back here and there for every two steps forward.
Apparently the tale of an unspecified disaster, Go Where the Undead Go is supposed to be exploring a sense of limbo between life and death, but there’s a sweetness and undeniable catchiness about the thing that just seems to catch you and then hang on without letting go. And I really don’t want it to anyway.
It’s out now on Fourtwenny Records, check it out.
