Another double feature – after indulging in the glossy disco pop of Neon Indian, I swung by Temple to cleanse my palette and catch the tail end of a set from The Death Narcissists, who without a doubt are one of the best newcomers this year. An explosion of rammed up aggression and energy, that even at it’s most lethal and razor-edged, never loses sight of its melodic aspirations or dare I say, its pop sensibilities. Don’t let that frighten you – these three fools mean business.
Yes, it’s lean, mean, and infectiously catchy – with enough tricks up their sleeves to keep you wanting more. Very curious to see where they take their sound next. More pictures and videos below.
